Abstract

While law students mostly depend on only LexisNexis or Westlaw for legal research, lawyers in legal practice use dozens of additional websites to gain legal information. This Article covers some of those websites, with an emphasis on resources that are either free or low-cost, including Fastcase, Casetext, Google Scholar, Cornell’s Legal Information Institute, Law Insider, Utah Courts’ self-help resources, the law libraries at Brigham Young University and the University of Utah, and the Utah State Law Library.

Keywords: legal research, legal information, Utah, Fastcase, Casetext, Google Scholar, law libraries, Lexis, Westlaw
