FastCase is a library database that contains primary legal materials including Federal and state statutes, cases, court rules, regulations and more that can be searched using keywords, natural language, or legal citations.  It can be accessed through the Rasmussen College Online Library, in the Databases A-Z List as well as through the Resources tab in any online class (click on Search eResources to link to the Database A-Z List).

Paralegal students have access to the premier legal database, Lexis Advance.  For more information about Lexis Advance, consult the Paralegal page in the School of Justice Studies Guide.

There are several "free" websites that provide access to legal resource (however, the resources on these websites may not be as current as FastCase so use with care!)
