legal resources on the Web

There is a wealth of information on legal matters on the Web. The information is normally found in distinct categories, firstly there is academic information placed on the Web by university legal departments, secondly there is information for practising lawyers, some of which, like LEXAS, is chargeable, thirdly there is information on legislation published by governments and legal institutions, fourth there is legal information published by special interest groups, such as native Americans and the disabled, and then there is the law for the rest of us, that is the public. The US generates by far the greatest amount of on-line legal information, though the UK, Canada and Australia are catching up.

There are also some unusual sources of legal advice on the Web, including legal advice from unqualified people.

This is not a complete list, but follow the links from these Sites and you should have a good overview of the resources available. Also read Peggie Brown's lecture on using the Internet for legal research.
