Our sister blog, Legal Skills Prof Blog, which is edited by Adjunct Law Prof Blog contributing editor Jim Levy, recently posted a list of alternatives to Lexis and Westlaw which found courtesy of the Wisconsin Law Journal. They are Fastcase, Loislaw, VersusLaw and The Law.net.
I have only used Loislaw. I do not think much of it. I found it to be slow and the interface to be rather cumbersome. Note that the above are not free. On the left side of this blog, I have a list of free legal research cites. None of the free cites do as comprehensive job as westlaw or lexis.
Readers should bookmark and regularly Legal Skills Prof blog as it is full of useful information for lawyers and law students.
