Free Electronic Legal Research: Home

A guide to finding legislation, cases, law review articles, journals, and other legal research information on the web.



The primary focus of this guide is free internet legal research and legal information.  Some sources included in this guide may be accessible only by using a computer in the law library, but most are free for everyone.  The challenge in researching law on the internet is finding appropriate, relevant, and reliable sources. 

For CSU faculty and staff and C|M|LAW faculty and staff, please see the Research Databases guide.  For an overview of legal research on the web, see this 38 minute mediasite video.

Mobile Apps

The staff at Cleveland-Marshall College of Law has compiled a great research guide on mobile apps for legal research.  Some of the apps are free, while others are low cost.
