Alabama Code Online
We are often contacted by people who do not necessarily need to hire a lawyer, but who want to know what the law in Alabama is on a particular topic. Many people are unaware that the entire Alabama Code is available online, courtesy of the Alabama Legislature. By visiting this link, you can look up any statute which has been enacted in Alabama. You can also look up pending legislation if you want to follow the progress of a proposed law that is important to you. Go to the ALISON site, and you can read the latest versions of the laws of Alabama. While the Search function on their site is not particularly helpful, you can use the View option to see the categories and subcategories of the statutes. I’ve found that this is usually the best way to find the text of Alabama laws online.
If you want to read appellate court decisions which have interpreted Alabama laws, then I would recommend you take a look at the free legal research tools in Google Scholar. To learn more about their legal research system, read the Google Scholar Review I wrote for the About.com Law Practice Management website.
We have also added many legal resources which are built directly into this website, such as the Alabama Rules of Appellate Procedure. Visit our Law page to find more of what we are currently offering online.
If you are looking for an attorney to represent you in an appeal of an Alabama case before the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals, Alabama Court of Civil Appeals, or Alabama Supreme Court, please review our website to see if our services may be for you. If so, fill out our online Contact form and we will be back in touch with you shortly.
Alabama State Bar rules require the following disclaimer in all attorney advertisements: “No representation is made that the quality of legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of services provided by other attorneys.”
