Legal Resources and Tool to Help You A Long The Way
Here at Huggins Law, we believe in giving you the knowledge and resources you need to best understand and prepare for your legal trials. We’ve compiled a list of some sites we think are beneficial to our clients.
Information on Other Cases and Regulations
Oyez is a free law project from Cornell’s LII, Justia, and Chicago-Kent College of Law. They have archived Supreme Court cases, rulings, and Justices, and believe in making this information accessible to the public. It is one of the most comprehensive databases for the Supreme Court’s audio recordings, and lets you search transcripts. They also give in-depth detail on every Justice to have served, as well as a digital tour of the Supreme Court Building.
Justia is a website that helps clients get answers to their questions, provided by real lawyers. They also have an area that lets you research both state and federal laws.
Legal Information Institute
LII is a not-for-profit group fun by Cornell Law School that publishes law online, creates materials to help people understand the law, and explores new ways to make it easier for the public to find law. They believe that everyone should have access to understand the laws they are under, free of charge.
Legal Help for Low Income Clients
Legal Services Corporation
LSC is the largest funder of legal aid for low-income Americans. It was established in 1074 and is a registered 501(c)(3) that believes everyone should have equal access to legal assistance. They distribute over 90% of their funding to 133 independent non-profit legal aid programs.
Law Help helps people on low-income by referring them to local aid and public interest law offices. They also include a network of over 25 statewide legal information portals. They have information about legal rights, court forms you may encounter, links to social service agencies, and more. LawHelp.org is part of www.probono.net.
The United Nations
The official site for the UN provides information on international law, peace, humanitarian, and human rights efforts.
This project of the Hauser Global Law School Program at NYU offers information on the law in different countries. You simple click on the country or topic you’re needing to know more about, and it directs you to a very in-depth page full of information on the laws, practices, and legal structure of that area.
Environmental Law Institute
ELI has a vision of “a healthy environment, prosperous economies, and vibrant communities founded on the rule of law.” They work to educate professionals and the public about law, procedures, their rights, and strategies for change. They also provide objective data and analysis to help people better understand the environmental decisions that are being made.
Center for International Environmental Law
CIEL uses the power of the law to protect the environment and promote human rights. They provide legal counsel and advocacy and policy research to ensure a sustainable society. Their three program areas include Climate and Energy, Environmental Health, and People, Land, and Resources.
Civil Rights Organizations
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People
“The mission of the NAACP is to secure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights in order to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons.”
American Civil Liberties Union
“The ACLU was founded to ensure the promise of the Bill of Rights and to expand its reach to people historically denied its protections.”
