|American Law Sources On-line|
Welcome to LawSource.com . . . the home of American Law Sources On-line (ALSO!), providing a comprehensive, uniform, and useful compilation of links to freely accessible on-line sources of law for the United States and Canada. (See also a link below for Mexico.) This site contains additional links to sources of commentary and practice aids that are available without charge (or available at a reasonable charge from governmental and nonprofit providers).
First-time visitors should read about using ALSO! the first time. Some visitors should read about finding an attorney and getting legal advice. Some might want to know where to lodge a complaint about a lawyer or judge. Introductions to the legal systems of the United States, Canada, and Mexico are provided (This Summary was written in 2002 and some hyperlinks may no longer be active.) at a site maintained by the North American Commission for Environmental Cooperation (Quebec, Canada):
In addition, see a lengthy “Outline of the U.S. Legal System” published by the U.S. State Department (now available only at the Internet Archive). See also “How U.S. Courts Work” in 4 Issues of Democracy No. 2 (Sept. 1999), published by the U.S. Information Agency (now available only at the Internet Archive). Foreign-language versions are available: “Le Fonctionnement des Tribunaux aux États-Unis” (French); “El Funcionamiento de los Tribunales Estadounidenses” (Spanish).
|NOTE—Very few Mexican law sources (hardly any in English) are available on the internet. Links are provided at the site above; therefore, links to such sources are no longer maintained on this site. See also (1) a general guide (without links) to Mexican legal materials in English and (2) a description of the Mexican legal system.|
