Robert Ambrogi [LawSites and Media Law blogs, Massachustts, USA] has posted his list of five legal sites “that made news orshould have made news—not necessarily the best or the worst, but the ones that most altered the online legal landscape.” They are:

Avvo, http://www.avvo.com, rates lawyers from 1 to 10, but has been sued for this. However, Martindale-Hubbell added client reviews to its law firm profiles—perhaps because of Avvo?

Public.Resource.Org, http://public.resource.org, creating an public-domain repository of all federal and state case law. Some 1.8 million pages will be available sometime in 2008.

AltLaw, http://altlaw.org, is a similar project, from law schools at Columbia University and the University of Colorado. Contains almost 170.000 decisions from the US Supreme and Federal Appellate Courts back to the early 1990s.

ABA Journal, http://www.abajournal.com/, with a complete redesign and access to all, not just ABA members. Back issues were added back to 2005 and content was added including court opinions; interview transcripts; Law News Now, a continuously updated feed of the day's legal news stories; and the Blawg Directory, an index of more than 1,000 blogs written by lawyers, law professors and law students.

, http://www.justia.com/, “one of the best free legal research sites on the Web” from the founder of FindLaw. Includes a a searchable collection of cases along with Supreme Court resources from all over the Web; BlawgSearch for searching law-related blogs; Blawgs.fm for searching law-related podcasts; and, just added, Federal District Court Filings & Dockets.
