Legal Research Over The Internet

Get Your Free Case Law On The Web is an important May 8, 2009 law.com article. It reviews the pros and cons of 10 different free internet research sites on the web-none of which compare to Lexis or Westlaw. The 10 sites it reviews are:
1. Fastcase and Casemaker.
2. FindACase.
3. PreCYdent.
4. The Public Library of Law.
5. AltLaw.
6. Justia
7. FindLaw.
8. Public.Resource.Org.
9. LexisONE.
10. Legal Information Institute

Adjunct Law Prof Blog lists a number of free internet research sites on the left hand side of this blog. I encourage you to use it. My view is that if your only looking for recent cases, LexisOne is the best free service. For older caselaw, PreCYdent is also good.
