New Free Legal Research Site Online

As you may know, the University Library provides two subscription legal research databases (LexisNexis Academic and West’s Campus Research). There are also free legal research sites such as FindLaw; see the Library’s Law Resources web page for links.

A new free site, currently in beta, is The Public Library of Law. I haven’t played with it extensively, but it looks promising. Available there: federal and state court cases and rules, statutes and constitutions, regulations, and legal forms.
