Free Legal Research Resources

Whether you are working for a mega law firm or putting out your own shingle, why spend money on legal resources you can get for free? Locate legal information you can rely on using free web - but don't forget to evaluate what you find.

Google It

The terms you choose and their order in your search make a difference in your results, so use the exact title if you know it.  Remember to verify the document source as something you can authenticate.

Context is Everything

The title can be hard to guess or even misleading for some legal publications.  For example, the Colorado Code is the administrative, not the statutory code as one would presume.  Use hierarchical lists like these to find the source you need even when you are unsure of the title.
