Google Scholar Becomes a Better Resource for Lawyers


Google Improves the Search Functionality for its Case Law Research Tool

We all know that Google isn't just a little ol' search engine; it's a powerhouse! And now, thanks to Google Scholar, the site is giving inhouse counsel, large and small firm attorneys some dynamic legal research tools.

When Google Scholar was first introduced in 2009, legal blogs took note. Lawyers, it seemed, were excited about the prospect of Google joining the academic research fray - until they actually used the service. Google Scholar proved to be a disappointment to many as it was quite apparent that it just didn't live up to other services like Westlaw and Lexis.

That may change.
