American Law

This LibGuide originally created by Rick Keogh will assist you in locating information on America's legal system (with information on the US Supreme Court, Constitution, as well as Federal and State Law).

Articles, Databases and E-Books

The resources  in this section provides overviews of the American legal system, guides and clearinghouses  The jurisdictional scope of almost all sites is for federal and state laws; there is minimal coverage of municipal law.  All sites are either totally or partially free-of-charge.  Many legal meta-sites and general legal guides also have links for American law.  It is good to remember that since many of these resources are "gateways" and directories, there is an invevitable amount of overlap and duplication.
