It is an Internet search tool for international legal professionals and a combination of advanced electronic technology and global databases. Its rich resources come from publishers of laws, regulations, taxation and accounting information. Users can quickly access case, statutes, forms, treaties, business materials and more through Westlaw International. With a Boolean logic search engine, users can retrieve millions of legal documents. HeinOnline has nearly 1,700 legal journals, 675 volumes of authoritative masterpieces in the field of international law, more than 100,000 cases, more than 1,400 fine academic law monographs. All law schools in the United States have ordered them. The database is a necessary database for law teaching, research and learning. Professor Luo suggested that Heinonline is an indispensable tool for finding English law journal articles, and its journal data is very rich; Westlaw is more suitable for finding statutes and regulations. Professor Luo Wei also personally showed the students how to find English cases and laws through two databases, and interacted and tested with the audience.
