News and information useful to Cleveland-Marshall College of Law students, faculty and staff.


Loislaw is Here!

loislawCleveland-Marshall Law Library is pleased to announce the availability of the Loislaw legal research platform to our students and staff. Public patrons can also access the database in the library.

Loislaw.com provides comprehensive, easy-to-use legal and related information. Loislaw markets themselves as a lower cost alternative to other legal research platforms. This coincides nicely with CM’s new solo practice incubator.

To access Loislaw visit the law library’s webpage, and click on Loislaw under the “Quick Links” section.  If you are off campus you will need to log in using your  CM ID and PW.

This is the same list printed in the library’s column in April edition of  The Gavel. Note one update:  LoisLaw, will likely be going away in about a month.

LexisNexis Academic has cases with headnotes, annotated statutes and regulations for the federal government and each of the fifty states.   Law review articles, news and a few secondary sources such as American Jurisprudence are accessible.

CCH Intelliconnect includes primary and secondary sources for certain topical areas such as labor and employment law, securities, health care, intellectual property and more.  For remote access, you must have logged in on campus within the prior 45 days.
