PLoL Offers Free Case Law Online

The March 18 New York Law Journal carried a short piece on a new website, the Public Library of Law (PLoL for short), which purports to be the largest collection of free case law anywhere. Here’s a rip from their main page:

Searching the Web is easy. Why should searching the law be any different? That’s why Fastcase has created the Public Library of Law — to make it easy to find the law online. PLoL is the largest free law library in the world, because we assemble law available for free scattered across many different sites — all in one place. PLoL is the best starting place to find law on the Web.What is available on PLoL?Cases from the U.S. Supreme Court and Courts of Appeals

PLoL also includes free links to paid content on Fastcase. PLoL is already the Web’s largest free law library, but with additional links from Fastcase, it is one of the most comprehensive law libraries in the world.Check out the site at
