  1. Anyone know of something like this for students? I don't expect it to be free, but I'm not paying out the nose either. Free would be great, but the free resources for Florida are about useless.

    You just looking for a digital legal library? Do you need specific search functions or just access to all the laws? For Florida?

    If you just need statutes use the state general assembly website.

    If you need access to case law and such try these, they are cheaper than lexis nexis or westlaw/

    thelaw.net
    itislaw.com
    loislaw.com
    versuslaw.com
     
  5. I need to find case examples where outcomes and judgments favor our argument. I basically need to give it an idea what i need and sort through the results. A team member is now on probation (non-reporting, misdemeanor) which means orange county prevents him from having guns while on probation. They do have an exemption clause though, and we are motioning for it. I need to find a bunch of examples where judges in FL, orange coutny if possible, awarded the exception.

    If I can find this judge awarding it even better.

    LN has a student product. It is at a reduced yearly rate.

    Man, that sounds like you need a good friend who's an attorney :eek:

    Seriously though, sorry, that's far beyond my scope of knowledge. I'm only up on how to search criminal law and criminal case law.
     
  8. It's a simple thing and we have someone who handles motions I'm just helping him with the research. He hasn't lost yet but it never hurts to help him.
