Google enhances legal research options
As posted in Robert Ambrogi's LawSites blog, Google enhanced its case law search function by allowing Google Scholar searches based jurisdiction. The ability to select jurisdictions is on the advanced search page under Collections. Simply select one (or more) federal or state courts. Selecting multiple courts is easy using the select specific courts to search link. The debate will rage on about whether free and low-cost alternatives to Lexis and WestLaw are viable. But you owe it to yourself to at least try Google Scholar to see if it can enhance your legal research options.
