Through a link from the Illinois State Bar Association Web site, you have unlimited free access to the Fastcase federal and national library and "framed" Illinois statutes and codes.
Here's just some of what Fastcase includes:
- an easy-to-use search engine that allows both Boolean and natural-language searching;
- cases from the courts of review from Illinois and every other state, as well as U.S. Supreme and federal appellate cases (users can search all jurisdictions at once);
- star pagination and double-column printing.
To log on, all that's needed is your ISBA member number, which is printed in the upper left-hand corner of your Illinois Bar Journal mailing label.
