A new free resource for lawyers provides easy access to hundreds of articles written by lawyers for CLE programs or for publication in legal periodicals. Called Litilaw, it claims to be the largest free collection of advanced legal articles available on the Internet. The site focuses on collecting articles of interest to litigators and organizes them under more than 30 substantive and procedural categories. Search the full text of articles or browse them by categories or latest additions. Full articles are available only in PDF format.

Litilaw provides a synopsis of each article, but the full text resides offsite at the article’s original location — usually a CLE provider or law firm. In fact, the site invites attorneys to add links to their own articles.

The site is operated by Lexbe.com, a company that markets a Web-based case analysis and document-management system.
