Another Free Legal Research Database: AltLaw

By

I’m not sure how I missed AltLaw, but thanks to all the others (including this one) who did not miss it, here you go. Altlaw, in their own words:

“The law is meant to belong to the people, but it can be surprisingly hard to find. Case reports, a major part of the laws of the United States, are hard to get at, and even when on the Internet, rarely searchable. To get full access you generally need either a library of law reports, or an expensive subscription to an online database, which can cost hundreds of dollars per hour.

AltLaw is a small effort to change that—to make the common law a bit more common. AltLaw provides the first free, full-text searchable database of Supreme Court and Federal Appellate case reports. It is a resource for attorneys, legal scholars, and the general public.”

I’ve blogged before here at Oregon Legal Research about free and low-cost legal research databases, so add AltLaw to the pool.
