Once upon a time, FindLaw.com was just a humble Web portal with a list of links and a mission. It served its purpose well, helping legal professionals “find the law” they needed for a given case, whether it was a particular state criminal code, federal antidiscrimination laws, or a recent Supreme Court holding.
But frankly, it wasn’t much to look at.
While retaining the legal research tools that made it a roaring success soon after its founding in 1995, FindLaw is a whole new animal now — and much easier on the eyes. The multifaceted portal has evolved to serve virtually everyone interested in the law (Learn About the Law and FindLaw Answers, for example), not just legal professionals.
