Remote Access to Legal Databases Extended
Even though San Diego is entering Phase 2 of California’s Resilience Roadmap, we know that many of us will still be working from home for the near future. And, with the San Diego Superior Court now open for most business operations, it is more important that ever to have access to the legal information and resources you need!
So, over the past few weeks, we have contacted our legal database vendors and negotiated FREE REMOTE ACCESS to the following legal databases:
- CEB Pro: This database provides online access to thousands of dollars worth of CEB’s famous California practice and action guides. as well as reporters and primary law with citators. By signing up through our legal databases webpage, you can create your own account login and password. At this time, these accounts last for 30 days or until June 30, 2020, whichever comes first.
- Fastcase: This database includes primary law with citators, as well as law review and journal articles, but DOES NOT include practice guides. You can access this database using the user name and password on our legal databases webpage. There is no expiration date for this service.
