Casemaker Online Legal Research Getting Better All the Time

Casemaker logo

Casemaker, a free NHBA member benefit since 2002, is growing and improving.


In March 2006, Casemaker recorded a 17 percent increase in nationwide usage over the previous month, with no new states added that month.


Casemaker, for the uninitiated, is a unique online legal research tool with a powerful search engine that provides access to a combination of state and federal materials. Created and supported by a consortium of state bars, Casemaker now includes 24 states and serves more than 438,000 American lawyers.


Casemaker is accessible to NHBA members through the For Members area at (User name and password required.)

Available now:



Enacted session laws that affect the last codified versions are listed in the smaller screen on the right. Listed session law enactments are available to help the user determine whether the later enactments alter the applicable law, depending on the date of the enactment.


Federal Library Enhancements:


Supercode is also available in the U.S. Code portion in the Federal Library.  Also, Casemaker users now can search caselaw by individual circuit courts. West citations will be added to current circuit court decisions going forward. F.Supp. Advance Sheets for all Reported Cases will be posted starting in June 2006, using West Star pagination.


Nationwide Collections:


Under this heading area in the library, it is now possible to search all of the state libraries for caselaw or ethics opinions.


Added State Libraries:


See accompanying list for added state libraries that are online or in the works. In addition, Casemaker has committed to add non-consortium state libraries to eventually provide 50-state coverage.
