Welcome to LawSource.com . . . the home of American Law Sources On-line (ALSO!), providing a comprehensive, uniform, and useful compilation of links to freely accessible on-line sources of law for the United States and Canada. (See also a link below for Mexico.) This site contains additional links to sources of commentary and practice aids that are available without charge (or available at a reasonable charge from governmental and nonprofit providers).

 See a warning about “spoofed” e-mail from LawSource, Inc. 

First-time visitors should read about using ALSO! the first time. Some visitors should read about finding an attorney and getting legal advice. Some might want to know where to lodge a complaint about a lawyer or judge.

Introductions to the legal systems of the United States, Canada, and Mexico are provided at a site maintained by the North American Commission for Environmental Cooperation (Quebec, Canada):

 Introduction to the Legal SystemUnited States • Canada • Mexico
 Introduction au système juridiqueÉtats-Unis • Canada • Mexique
 Introducción al sistema jurídicoEstados Unidos • Canadá • México

In addition, see a lengthy “Outline of the U.S. Legal System” published by the U.S. State Department (now available only at the Internet Archive). See also “How U.S. Courts Work” in 4 Issues of Democracy No. 2 (Sept. 1999), published by the U.S. Information Agency (now available only at the Internet Archive). Foreign-language versions are available: “Le Fonctionnement des Tribunaux aux États-Unis” (French); “El Funcionamiento de los Tribunales Estadounidenses” (Spanish).

NOTE—Very few Mexican law sources (hardly any in English) are available on the internet. Links are provided at the site above; therefore, links to such sources are no longer maintained on this site. See also (1) a general guide (without links) to Mexican legal materials in English and (2) a description of the Mexican legal system.
