Castext – Free Legal Research and Online Lawyer Community

Casetext is a legal research resource that provides case summaries, key facts of each case, annotations provided by its crowdsourced community of over 200,000 visitors each month (think Wikipedia for case law), and advanced search tools. Oh yeah, and it’s free. “Our goal is to make all the world’s laws free and understandable,” said co-founder Jake Heller. They’re on their way – Casetext has nearly all federal cases, and many state law cases free for the public and searchable through an open legal research database. Although PACER should have done this, Casetext is actually making it happen.
