13 Free Sites to Do Your Legal Research. The Internet is a marvelous thing. These sites prove it. While Fastcase is paid for by my Florida bar dues, it is a great place to do case law searching, supplemented by the Google Scholar database. If you can't find a case pertinent to your project at one of these two sources, it doesn't exist. The statutes and codes of every State and Federal jurisdiction are also available online, and searchable. There are even secondary resources that are useful. So, do it for free first. You might find you never have to pay for legal research again.
