free research access for law students

The Illinois State Bar Association has a new FREE legal national research service for ISBA members.  It is called Fastcase.  More details are at the top of the webpage that's at http://www.isba.org,  including an FAQ link about the legal research service.  A couple of other states also offer this specific service now too.  This is a fantastic membership benefit for a bar association to offer.

And the Illinois State Bar Association just also made student membership FREE for all law students (as long as they agree to get everything electronically).  Your students do not have to be in Illinois - they can join from any part of the country (or outside the country too for that matter).  There is a "join" link at the bottom of the page at http://www.isba.org/lawstudents/.
