UNC Press Law Publications in HeinOnline


Jenkins’ HeinOnline subscription includes access to all of the legal materials published by the University of North Carolina Press.

The UNC Press Law Publications collection includes over “400 current and historical titles in full-color image-based PDF format.” The titles cover a wide range of legal topics and timelines, from the oldest book currently in the collection - Law and Morals: The McNair Lectures  (1924) by Roscoe Pound - to the most recent - Gender and Jim Crow: Women and the Politics of White Supremacy in North Carolina, 1896-1920 (2019, 2nd ed.) by Glenda Elizabeth Gilmore.

UNC Press upholds a reputation for excellence by publishing titles, written by distinguished scholars, that “explore important questions, spark lively debates, generate ideas, and… that have an impact and make a difference,” according to its About page. Established in 1922, the Press continues to be a leader in publishing books by and about African Americans, recognizing the interdisciplinary field of women’s studies, and fostering Native American and Indigenous studies. Living up to its intention not to “shy away from the controversial issues of the day,” the UNC Press Law Publications collection in HeinOnline includes books that address the “AIDS pandemic, slavery, religion, immigration, and more.”

Titles in the UNC Press Law Publications collection can be found using our online catalog. Use the Advanced Search option to enter a keyword, and type "University of North Carolina Press" into the Publisher field, for example.

From the results list, select a title that you're interested in, such as The Rule of Law: Albert Venn Dicey, Victorian Jurist by Richard A. Cosgrove. (Hint: If you see the word "Internet" included in the entry, that's a clue that the title is part of an electronic database like HeinOnline.)

Upon selecting the title, you'll see that the book's individual catalog record includes a link, labeled "Members Resource", that will link you directly into the title in Hein. Just click to view...

...and voila!
