Recent posts discussed sources online for legal research (See my post of Oct. 31, 2005 about Casemaker and Thecorporatecounsel.net.) and lawyers using search engines for an hour a day or more (See my post of Jan. 10, 2005 about Google.)
Dozens of posts would not be enough to chronicle the digitized legal information available at low or no cost, but let me chip away at the backlog. The New York State Law Reporting Bureau (LRB) Web site, for example (NYSBA Journal, Vol. 78, Jan. 2006 at 32.) The LRB makes available all decisions published or abstracted in the Official Reports from January 2000 through the present. There is no charge to visit the public site.
Second, I read about a topic-based online electronic research tool, called LawyerLinks Advantage. It’s modus operandi differs from the word-search tools because it has organized material into legal topics.
