Criminal Law

Legal Information Institute - Criminal Law

Cornell University and the Legal Information Institute provide an excellent array of sources covering criminal law, including federal laws, regulations, judicial decisions, international materials and federal agency information.

Talk Justice

Although a commercially-supported site, Talk Justice provides an excellent resource with fully annotated links, alphabetically arranged, covering a wide variety of criminal law-related research. This site hosts a forum for the discussion of crime and criminal justice issues.

The Buffalo Criminal Law Center http://www.wings.buffalo.edu/law/bclc/index.htm

The Buffalo Criminal Law Center, hosted by the Buffalo School of Law, provides a website with links to criminal law resources on the Internet. Users can access penal codes, codes of criminal procedure, and criminal legislation, both national and international. A link to Penal Law Web provides access to a comprehensive online digest of American criminal law. Of special interest is the Penal Code Comparer that allows users to compare penal codes by topic side by side on a split screen.

National Criminal Justice Reference Service

NCJRS is a federally-sponsored information clearinghouse for people around the country and the world involved with research, policy and practice related to criminal justice. NCJRS hosts one of the largest criminal justice libraries and databases in the world - the NCJRS Abstracts Database. The database includes over 160,000 criminal justice publications, including federal, state, and local government reports, journal articles, books and research reports, and statistics. Users have a choice of searching this abstract database or a collection of over 1,500 full-text publications. Links to other criminal justice sites are provided via this web site, including the FBI, U.S. Department of Justice, Criminal Justice Institute, and many institutes, associations, and agencies dealing with criminal justice issues.
