Free and Frugal Legal Research

This guide presents a number of free sources of legal information, organized by category. It also includes some low-cost alternatives for attorneys seeking more frugal legal research tools.

Introduction

Legal research can be expensive. Subscriptions to the major legal databases are prohibitive to small firms and solo practitioners, and completely out of reach for individuals researching their own legal questions.

This guide presents a number of free sources of legal information, organized by category. It also includes some low-cost alternatives for attorneys seeking more frugal legal research tools.

In addition to the resources listed in this guide, visitors to the Wise Law Library have access to a number of expensive databases, many of which are listed on our database list, as well as a robust collection of print resources. You can also get free research assistance by contacting a law librarian.
