- FindLaw This site is very
comprehensive, well organized and allows you to search various resources directly, such as
the U.S. Code. It has a very large subject matter listing with lots of information in the
various subjects. It also has links to a wide array of links to Legal Forms. This is a great
site and you can search it directly from here.
- The Virtual ChaseTM -- A Research
Site for Legal Professionals -- recently given high marks by Burgess Allison in his Technology Update Column is
the place to go for a far reaching approach to legal resources on the web.
- Internet Legal Resource Guide. A
categorized index of more than 4000 select web sites in 238 nations, islands, and
territories, as well as more than 850 locally stored web pages and downloadable files,
this site was established to serve as a comprehensive resource of the information
available on the Internet concerning law and the legal profession, with an emphasis on the
United States of America.
- Washlaw Web from the Washburn University Law
School is a no-nonsense quick entrée into the law on the web.
- Cornell's Legal Information Institute was one
of the first legal sites on the Net and it remains in the vanguard in terms of providing
useful content and a portal to legal information on the Internet.
- All Law has both a Federal Law Search Page and State Law Search Page that let you search up
to 4 different law sites at once, in addition to a well organized and extensive Legal Directory. This is a Hot
- LawGuru's Law Related Links is an
well organized site with an excellent law search page (the key is to use
the drop-down box in the top frame).
- Legal On-Line's Best of the Web strives to
collect the very best legal resources on the Web.
- The Practicing Attorney's Home Page ,
is a practical guide for attorneys to find useful information. It is well organized, has
lots of links, but not so many that you have to wade through megabytes to find what you
want. It also has an orientation to California law.
- West Group's State
Resources is good and, at this point, pretty up-to-date.
- CataLaw is a very well organized, comprehensive
- Law and Politics Internet
Guide is a well organized and more comprehensive list of legal lists than this one.
It does not get one directly into state law resources.
- Federal Legal Resources is our distilled list of Federal
resources, including the Code of Federal Regulations, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
and Evidence & gateways to Congressional information, such as pending bills and the
Federal Register. We've kept it short, but there is a world of information accessible
through these links.
- The World Wide Legal Information Association
a site that lists attorneys for a number of states as well as pointing to legal
information throughout the U.S., U.K., Canada and the Pacific.
- Our own Alaska Legal Resource Center has been called a
"terrific model for the way substantive information can get put on the net" by G. Burgess Allison . This
is a comprehensive guide to Alaska legal related materials, including appellate decisions,
Alaska Statutes and the Alaska Administrative Code (regulations).
- U.S. House of Representatives Internet Law Library .
This is a pretty comprehensive site, but it could use a link checker to remove dead links.
- LCSWeb by Legal Computer Solutions Inc., is another
- DepoNet's Law Links is
another list of legal lists in case there aren't enough for you here.
- Hieros Gamos bills itself as the most comprehensive
site, but it is not up to date. It is also fairly confusingly organized.
It does have a lot of international material, though.
- The Center for Information Law and Policy is yet
another portal and also has listings of forums.
- USA Law has a lot of materials, including a
database of articles on various topics.
- Law Research is a new comprehensive
site that claims to have "over 30,000 law related links that are sorted, coded and
verified every 90 days." Well, we didn't find its Table of Contents. quite that good,
but there is a lot of stuff there.
- USC's Legal Resources on the Net is
a very organized large list of legal resources, divided into categories.
- Laws Online is a good, well organized, one-stop
legal resource, but they charge for their LEGAL FORMS.
- The Glenn S. Bacal's Indispensable Website for
Lawyers and their Clients is a a darn good site, particularly for intellectual
property law. It also has a comprehensive set of pointers to other sources..
- Cornell Law School topical index
and source index for law. EInet Galaxy's law meta index. Emory
University School of Law Library Electronic
Reference Desk. [almost took this one out, but it does have law library material that
might not be found elsewhere.] Law
related sites on the Internet at the University of Waikato. U.S. Goverment Resources
- U.S. Government Resources index from
the University of Illinois, Urbana/Champaign.
- WWW Servers (U.S. Federal Goverment)
index from the Federal Information Exchange.
- Georgia State University's Meta-Index for Legal Research, a good
form-based interface to many of the legal indicies on the Internet. [This is a very
interesting site which compiles all(?) of the legal search engines and lets one search
them through submission forms right on this page. Try it, you'll like it?]
- WWW Virtual Law Library at
Indiana University School of Law. This is another law school list that has quite a few
- The Seamless Web was perhaps the first commercial
legal information site and it has a lot of information.
- The 'Lectric Law Library has a number of
- I suppose we should mention LawLinks on
the chance that you can find something here that you can't from one of the other links.
- Equal time demands that we also point to the Lexis/Nexis
American Law Source Online (ALSO), seems
to be in the throes of a major change at the moment. The purpose of ALSO! is to provide a
comprehensive, uniform, and useful compilation of links to all on-line sources of American
law that are available without charge. It was pretty good a while ago and
may be worth checking out again in the near future.
If anybody thinks we should add anything to this list (we've left out a lot, but how
much do you want?), OR if you just want to let us know how good (or bad) this is, e-mail
