The Evolving Legal Landscape

                            

Thanks to the Internet, legal information is freely available from a variety of sources and some of the best sources include government websites, law libraries as well as some commercial websites. Gone are the days of spending hours using books to locate information since much of this can be found online. Limiting your searches to domains that end in .gov or .edu is also a good way to locate reliable sources of legal information.
