Groklaw is a free, comprehensive legal web site, providing a multitude of useful online legal resources. The site's "legal research" link is particularly useful for law students and legal professionals. Groklaw describes their legal research feature:

This page is designed to help you find information on various topics for yourself, things like courts, cases, statutes, legal articles, and law libraries.

There is also a separate page of Patent Links, one for all the Contracts, another listing the Courts relevant to cases we cover in depth, like the SCO litigation, a page on DRM, and one for the GPL. We also have a page on the Comes v. Microsoft case, as well as one on Microsoft litigation generally. If you are looking for lawyers in the SCO litigation, you'll find them here. Sometimes the easiest way to find something is to look through the daily Archives by keyword, if you are looking for something Groklaw has covered, or using our Search application.
