Get Access to Many Articles for Free With Digital Commons Law Commons

Digital Commons’ Law Commons provides free full text access to over 100,000 articles and works, and growing.  Law Commons combines all the works uploaded by law schools which use the Digital Commons platform for their institutional repository, for example C|M|LAW’s  EngagedScholarship@CSU – Law Collections which we blogged about last week.

You can filter by topic, by clicking on one of the subtopic Commons on the left hand side.  Each Commons shows the most recent articles uploaded (some of which may have been published a while ago, but they were recently uploaded to Digital Commons).   Popular Institutions and Popular Authors are listed, based upon number of downloads that month.  You can get email alerts when there is new content in a certain topic, or by a certain author.
