FindLaw is dedicated to making legal information and community on the Internet easy to find. We have developed several features with this goal in mind, including:
FindLaw began in 1995 as a list of Internet resources compiled for a workshop of the Northern California LawLibrarians. Its founders were Stanford engineering graduate student Timothy Stanley and attorney Stacy Stern. The response to the material was so positive that the team decided to post it on a Web page so that others could use it as well. In January 1996, FindLaw was launched, and it continues to grow in scope as well as in popularity. FindLaw has won several honors and awards since its inception. We continuously improve and update the FindLaw site (we update the site multiple times each day).
The University Law Review Project with full text search of the law reviews on the Internet and the abstract mailing lists are services which we have undertaken with the Coalition of Online Journals.This coalition is dedicated to increasing the dissemination of legalscholarship on the Internet. It includes law review editors and law professors from throughout the world. We encourage others to join this organization.
We would also like to thank Yahoo! for creating an inspirational site that sets the standard for Web guide interface design.
If you have any links you would like added to FindLaw please e-mail us. We are especially on the outlook for law journals and survey papers on areas of the law. We also welcome comments and suggestions for improvements.
