NH Bar Legal Research Survey - revised

Introduction

 
The NH Bar Association currently offers Casemaker as a no-cost benefit to members, providing access to online legal research. A member-led work group is reviewing options for renewing our arrangement with Casemaker or using another source. We are interested in members' experiences with Casemaker and with other legal research resources. Your cooperation will be very helpful
If you have any questions or additional feedback, contact Dan Wise at dwise@nhbar.org.
