Fastcase: New Law Library Legal Research System

For quick and easy access to federal and state case law, try the Law Library's new subscription to Fastcase!  Fastcase is the number one smartphone app for lawyers, according to the 2013 ABA Legal Technology Survey Report.  Retrieve cases in  HTML, and download them to pdf, print, or email.  To access Fastcase, you do not need to create a user name or password (though you will need to type in your name and barcode from the back of your law school ID to access Fastcase from an off-campus computer).

Did you know that case law from Fastcase is now intergrated in HeinOnline?  See the brochure at http://heinonline.org/HeinDocs/CaseLawLinking.pdf for detailed information.
