ACLU Freedom Network?
Links to materials on all kinds of civil rights, from Church and State to Workplace Rights. Great source for school papers.

Halt is one of the largest legal reform and self-help organizations in the country. The site includes full-text "Everyday law" guides on a wide variety of topics, a state-by-state guide to small claims courts, and legal headlines of interest to consumers.

This commercial site offers Q and A's on a wide range on legal issues from Auto Accidents to Small Claims Court. Also provides a form to ask a legal question and have it answered by an attorney.

The 'Lectric Law Library(TM)??
Definitely the most fun legal site around, this is an eclectic mixture of the silly and the cerebral. Includes areas for lawyers, judges and lay people, plus substantive areas such as the "Forms Room" and "Reference Room."

Legal dot Net - The Legal Network for Everyone
Interactive forum for legal professionals, law students and consumers. Chat rooms, ask a legal question forum, breaking news stories and articles, law school information, and products for sale.

Tons of pamphlets on a wide variety of consumer law issues.

Neigborhood Law: Legal Information
This is really the only self-help law site devoted to Massachusetts law.  One of our favorites, it has a lot of information and referral sources as well.

Nolo Home Page
The premier self-help legal publisher presents articles on 5 or 6 currently "hot" consumer issues. The cool thing is there are lots of links to other sites on these same topics.

West's Legal Directory: About the Law
Great site! Includes links to a law dictionary for the lay person, introduction to the US Courts, pamphlets from state bar associations, and articles from the Encyclopedia of American Law on 42 different subjects.
