LexisNexis is the main database many companies and law firms use for their research. Nexis Uni searches newspapers, company information, and legal resources.
Google Scholar (the legal version) currently leads you to a lot of law journals and court opinions available for free, in full text. If however, you come across a site that asks you to pay by credit card, we recommend you pass it by as you will likely find it in full text in LexisNexis.
