The Power of the Web: Free Internet Legal Research

Sponsored by the Agricultural and Food Law Consortium



Whether you are a new to legal research or a veteran researcher, this session will take your use of free internet legal resources to the next level.

As the availability of online legal materials increases, it is difficult to know where to start and which sites are the most valuable. Legal websites vary drastically in terms of materials collected, scope of coverage and search options. Some are good for finding legal commentary, while others focus on primary law or practical legal materials. This program will cover the best free legal websites and demonstrate how to use them effectively.
