Here's a list of low cost legal research alternatives compiled by a Milwaukee law firm librarian courtesy of the Wisconsin Law Journal. The article appears to be authored before Lexis announced its special solo practitioner rates - which currently makes Lexis a very competitive product - so some of these alternatives may no longer be as inexpensive as they once were. Also, the article omits mention of Bloomberg Law which offers attractive pricing as well.
The four recommendations are Fastcase, Loislaw, VersusLaw and The Law.net (kudos for grabbing that last domain name). You can read a detailed description of each product courtesy of the Wisconsin Law Journal here.
