Abstract

Legal research inside the ivory tower is cushy. Students don’t have to bill anyone for the research they perform, and their libraries provide them with nearly unlimited access to LexisNexis and Westlaw. Outside the ivory tower, things aren’t quite as plush - especially these days. Fortunately, there are many free and low-cost legal research resources that can be of use. Written for Student Lawyer magazine, this column examines several of these resources and provides tips on using them.

Keywords: legal research, free, low-cost, Loislaw, VersusLaw, Casemaker, Fastcase, Google Scholar
