Introduction and Background

FedLaw has been developed to ascertain if hypertext links to legal Home Pages on the Internet could be a useful and cost-effective research tool for Federal lawyers and other Federal employees. The Internet can be extremely useful for research. However, many of the materials are embedded deep within the Internet so that finding them is time-consuming. For instance, the Cornell Legal Information Institute (a major source used here) contains Federal laws but not many Federal regulations. To help overcome this problem, Fedlaw has assembled a select group of references of particular use to those persons doing Federal legal research and which can be accessed directly through "point and click" hypertext connections.
