TMLL Research Guide - Chapter 2


While Lexis and Westlaw dominated the electronic legal research landscape for many years, new competitors have recently emerged. Alternative electronic legal research databases including Bloomberg Law, Casemaker, Fastcase, VersusLaw, Loislaw (soon to be folded into Fastcase), and HeinOnline are continuously expanding their content and features and are providing a challenge to the traditional vendors in an increasingly competitive market. While this Guide cannot individually address each one, the basic principles of electronic research apply: utilize the Help features and tutorials available on the various systems before conducting research in order to educate yourself about how to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of your research.
