State Online Legal Information

Online Legal Information

AALL and chapter volunteers researched primary legal materials in their states to determine if online legal materials are trustworthy and preserved for permanent public access. This website brings together information from AALL's National Inventory of Legal Materials and updates AALL's Preliminary Analysis of AALL’s State Legal Inventories, 2007 State-by-State Report on Authentication of Online Legal Resources and 2009-2010 State Summary Updates. Information is provided about the online Administrative Code, Administrative Register, Statutes, Session Laws, High Court Opinions and Appellate Court Opinions in all 50 states and the District of Columbia in the following categories*:

  • Official Status 
  • Authentication 
  • Preservation
  • Permanent Public Access 
  • Copyright 
  • Universal Citation 
To access each state page, hover over the State Online Legal Information tab above and select a state. The state pages will be updated as information changes and as we learn more about developments in the states.

AALL’s Digital Access to Legal Information Committee (DALIC) will monitor this site and periodically check in with AALL’s state working groups to ensure the accuracy of the information. DALIC also welcomes your additions or corrections. Please fill out our form and a member of DALIC will contact you to verify the information you provide.
