A guide to locating federal statutes, court rules, case law and secondary materials available in the UCLA Law Library and online.

Subscription Services (available to UCLA Law students, staff and faculty)

Free or Low-Cost Services

Bankruptcy court are difficult to find for free online (except for those opinions posted on the courts' official Web sites, which are typically only the most recent decisions, and the more limited options of Google Scholar and Justia).

Options include the low-cost subscription service Loislaw and the UCLA subscription database LexisNexis Academic (see descriptions below). Also consider calling your local college campus or public law library, which may have subscriptions to LexisNexis Academic or public-access Westlaw, respectively.

UCLA Law students are eligible for free Loislaw accounts which remain active throughout the summers and 6 months after graduation.
