Guide to free case law search

Are you confused about all the new sources appearing that say you can search case law online, for free? Does it really work? Is it complete?

Now at Virtual Chase, a copy of an article by Carole Levitt and Mark Rosch, Editors of Internet Fact Finding For Lawyers, Free Case Law Databases.

The authors review several online case law sources, The Public Library of Law, the law portal at Justia, and Justia's online databases of Federal District Court Opinions and Orders, Supreme Court decisisions, Court of Appeals decisions, U.S. District Court's civil case filings and dockets, and Federal Regulations . They also discuss the service that is putting lots of case law online for downloading (but not searching), from Public.Resource.Org and Creative Commons.
