This lecture was prepared for an advanced legal research class. I modify it to present to first year classes that want a lecture about cost effective use of Lexis and Westlaw and/or alternative databases and free web sources. For the advanced legal research class, I have a couple of follow up assignments (I did not submit them to the Teach-in kit), one where the students critique a search and point out ways to save money. Another assignment is to do various searches using the free web and alternative databases such as Casemaker, CCH, etc.
