Free Quicklaw Access for U.S. Law Schools

It's not very well advertised, but U.S. law school users may access Quicklaw at no charge. To register, call 1-800-387-0899. A .edu email address is required.

Quicklaw, from LexisNexis Canada, is a Web-based resource that offers over 2,500 databases of law, news and information from Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Africa, Malaysia and the Caribbean. Includes cases & case citator, legislation, regulations, and news & journal articles. See the source directory for more information.

Apparently, there is a new Quicklaw, but according to the LexisNexis Canada representative I spoke with, this is not available to US Law Schools, nor are there plans to offer it anytime soon.

Yup. We're keeping the really good stuff North of the border.

Cheers.
