Public Library of Law 

You may be familiar with Fastcase, a subscription legal database. Now Fastcase has released a free online version, The Public Library of Law, self-described as "the most comprehensive free resource for legal research online." The free library contains cases from the U.S. Supreme Court and Courts of Appeals, plus appellate cases from all 50 states from 1997 forward. In addition, it has statutes from all states, court rules from all states, constitutions from all states, regulations from selected states, the U.S. Code, the Code of Federal Regulations, federal court rules, the U.S. Constitution, and selected legal forms. While not equivalent in scope or search capabilities to the premium Fastcase, the Public Library of Law is a handy tool to have when you can't access Westlaw or Lexis but still want to access primary legal sources online.
