Legal Resources just a click away

[Guest article from Srikant Misra]


Knowledge Enhancement for jobs in LPO


Legal Process Outsourcing is providing great job opportunities to young and talented lawyers of India. However, many aspirants fail to procure a passport into the LPO industry because of a lack of basic knowledge about the US/UK legal system. I have compiled a list of web resources for enhancement of legal knowledge of LPO professionals. It is the result of my rigorous efforts. I hope the contents will prove helpful to legal professionals, aspiring to contribute into the LPO industry.


PLoL is the largest free law library in the world, because it clubs together, legal treasures scattered across many different sites. I believe, PLoL is the best starting place to find law on the Web.

University of Washington's online library is another free resource, the University's website provide legal information and materials (including laws, bills, court opinions and related documents) and/or links to legal material. Most of these sites are freely available to all users, who have a quest for online legal information. Some sites are UW Restricted, that is, available to University of Washington faculty, students, and staff and visitors to UW Libraries.

Open Jurist is a resource for access to the case law of the United States. In their righteous effort to make legal information handy and complimentary, Open Jurist came up with accessibility of legal information by the public without restriction.

The law and legal reference library from JRank provides free access to thousands of legal articles, covering important court cases, historical legal documents, state laws & statutes and general legal information covering important areas like Landlord and Tenant Relationship, Health Insurance Laws and Employment Laws. Their legal reference database also covers historically important court cases such as the Ulysses obscenity trial, Plessy vs. Ferguson, Roe vs. Wade amongst many others.

The website Legal-Explanations.com provides the very best in free legal resources written in plain English. The website currently contains over 2,500 legal definitions and will be expanded in coming months to include a vast collection of legal resources.

Cornell University School of law is perhaps the most widely used free legal resource on the Internet. Easy interface, huge resource and regular updates make it a good choice for junior associates and LPO professionals.

Though I firmly believe, without any doubt, that Lexis and West are the best paid resources and there is no alternative to their huge collection of data or their inbuilt functions like Shepardizing and KeyCite. I would continuously try to present free but useful information for the legal fraternity. Inter alia, I hope the information provided above would be beneficial to many lawyers who are preparing for the enormous number of job opportunities in the field of legal process outsourcing.


Best Wishes

I always understood that insurance was protection against something that might or might not happen (e.g. fire, theft), and assurance was protection against something that was bound to happen sooner or later (e.g. death).
