WashLaw.edu website continues to be recognized

According to a new article, "The Internet Guide to Legal Portals," WashLaw (http://washlaw.edu/), is a "venerable site from the early days of the Web that continues to be relevant."

The WashLaw site is maintained by the Washburn Law Library. The article was written by Ken Kozlowski, who is the Director of the Law Library of the Supreme Court of Ohio. In Kozlowski's article, which was published in the October 2013 issue of Internet Law Researcher, WashLaw is listed as one of several portals "that will provide excellent starting points for legal research as well as some solid subject-specific information." 

WashLaw, which began nearly 20 years ago as one of the first portals for legal research on the web, underwent a redesign in 2009. Links to resources for another 68 foreign jurisdictions were added to WashLaw’s foreign law coverage. The internet is one of the best places to find foreign law resources and sometimes the only place. Links on WashLaw are reviewed and selected by law librarians, making them more relevant than results from a traditional search engine. WashLaw currently has links to more than 20,000 resources.
