Low-Cost Legal Research

As school was coming to an end I blogged about student access to Westlaw/Lexis/Bloomberg for the summer.  While the access to Lexis and Bloomberg is wide open, some of you may not have access to Westlaw this summer.  Some of you may also be in firms that don’t use any of the more expensive legal […]

Digital Collections

100,000 downloads.  That was the milestone our digital repository hit last week.  Pretty impressive if you ask us.  The Howard W. Hunter Law Library Digital Collections, which debuted at the end of last summer, provides free access to a number of documents, including the complete archive of the Brigham Young University Law Review, the Journal of […]

10th Circuit’s New Website

Government websites are a mixed bag.  Some are quite modern, while others look like they’re stuck in the ’90s.  The information on these websites is free, so attorneys and others come to them often for legal information.  The easier they are to use, the fewer headaches they induce. The United States Court of Appeals for […]

Legal Research From The Bar

We talk a lot about Westlaw and Lexis in our legal research classes, but there are a number of other low-cost/free legal research resources that law students and attorneys should be aware of.  Westlaw and Lexis are great tools, but they also cost a lot of money.  As times continue to be tough in the […]

Federal Register 2.0

A few weeks ago I wrote about one of my favorite government websites – regulations.gov.  Another one of my favorites also has to do with regulations – federalregister.gov.  This government website contains an unofficial version of the daily Federal Register, but it’s so useful that I think it’s a great place to research in the […]

FCC’s Indecency Policy

A few weeks back I saw a Deseret News article that caught my eye for a couple of reasons.  First, I’m a parent and the article reported on a request for comments by the FCC to relax its current broadcast television decency standards.  Second, I had just finished teaching a few classes on administrative law […]

Google Scholar Legal Docs

Since it came out a few years back, Google Scholar Legal Documents has been a welcome addition to legal research (especially as a free resource).  One attorney who was in the library the other day told me he uses it frequently and I’ve heard the same from many lawyers. When I wrote about Google Scholar […]

Lexis Advance This Summer

Lexis has just announced that law students will have unlimited access to Lexis Advance this summer.  That means you can use Lexis Advance for any type of legal work you will be doing this summer.  Previously Lexis has always had restrictions on summer access (as Westlaw to this point still does) on using their product […]
