Google Scholar

Well, it’s been about a month since its inception, but Google’s latest creation seems to be a hit.  Google Scholar is now available for various scholarly articles but also provides a great source for legal opinions.  

Most importantly for attorneys, Google Scholar provides access to state cases going back to 1950, and federal cases going back to 1924.  Therefore, Google Scholar provides at least 50 years of state and federal cases that have been reported. And you can search these databases using the same word based queries  used in the regular Google engine.  Finally, this service works great on your Blackberry or iPhone, so with a couple of quick clicks, you find cases at your fingertips on your mobile device.

The available version is still in its “beta” phase, making it far from perfect. However, it is FREE, and it is very easily accessible for those attorneys always on the go, in court or in meetings where a laptop and Westlaw is more than a quick click away.  Find the service below, and enjoy its price: FREE!
