Latest Legal Link



This subscription-bases online legal research service provides a comprehensive collection of resources for the attorneys and other legal professionals. Users will find case law, statutory law, administrative law, and other types of primary law from every state. Additional resources include PACER dockets access, and secondary resources like legal newspapers and forms collections. Fastcase is searchable by keyword, natural language, or citation look-up. The site offers integrated citation analysis: "Fastcase is the only service that allows you to find the most cited case in your results with a single click". The user benefits from this time-saving aspect of Fastcase, unlike other proprietary resources that require running citation through another search to update the analysis. Finally, the site explains that it offers a more affordable option to other traditional research services, which is an added bonus.
