What’s Missing from this List?

It’s always interesting to see what resources are really being used by Summer Associates. Paul Lomio posted an unscientific quick poll of his Advanced Legal Research class last Friday, and the results are interesting. Here is the list of resources and the number of students who used it:

Google – 18

Westlaw – 14

LexisNexis – 11

Books – 8

Various databases licensed by Stanford University – 6

City/municipal codes – 5


A librarian – 4

HeinOnline – 3


PubMed – 2

ONLaw (California CEB database) – 1

SSRN – 1

Although the students worked for a wide variety of organizations, both private and public, it is interesting to note that Fastcase, Casemaker and Loislaw are not on the list at all. It’s hard to promote alternatives when new attorneys aren’t even aware of the options.
