As Texas attorneys, the State Bar of Texas provides access to an online legal research system that you may not yet be aware of— Fastcase. Typically, most state bar associations provide access to Fastcase or other similar systems. Fastcase can meet most attorneys’ research needs by providing access to primary law (e.g., statutes, administrative rules and regulations, and case law) and limited secondary sources.
You do not need to wait for your bar license to use Fastcase, as law students you can find it in the law library Electronic Resources List and obtain immediate access to Fastcase with your eRaider. We encourage you to use it so that you become proficient with the systems upon graduation.
If you have any questions, please email Electronic & Digital Services Librarian, Dajiang Nie, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
