Lawyers benefit from HSBA deal
The Hawaii State Bar Association has partnered with Fastcase to give Hawaii lawyers free access to the world’s largest law library. The bar association and legal publisher Fastcase will give access to Fastcase’s nationwide legal research system.
This partnership is the latest in a growing number of bar associations that are offering the Fastcase benefit – 23 state bar associations representing more than 500,000 lawyers now subscribe to Fastcase as a free benefit for their members.
Starting Dec. 1, more than 7,000 members of the HSBA gained free access to Fastcase’s comprehensive online legal research system, which ordinarily sells for $995 per member per year. This exclusive bar member benefit provides members of the HSBA with unlimited access to one of the largest law libraries in the world, training webinars and tutorials, and live customer support from members of the Fastcase team.
In addition to its nationwide legal research database, Fastcase’s Hawaii-specific libraries include caselaw and statutes, acts, Attorney General opinions, court rules, and much more. The service also includes transactional access to newspaper articles, federal court filings, and legal forms. Visit www.hsba.org or www.fastcase.com.
