About

Maybe you are looking for caselaw that is on-point for your client’s legal issue – a “known unknown” because you don’t know if there is relevant legal precedent. You can also do this type of research for free. You can do quite a lot of effective legal research for free. For bits that require subscription services for those “unknown knowns”.
