Versus Law Many of the legal citations published on the ACFC site have been provided pro-bono by Versuslaw. It is the best online law resource we have found, covering both federal and state case law. Versuslaw is nearly as good as what attorneys use, yet at a tiny fraction of the cost. If you are acting pro se, or need to do some legal research on a fairly extensive casefile database, this is the place to look. Versuslaw has a free two-week trial period.
