WHAT'S NEW

Blog

As of the end of 2014, we've suspended updates of legal materials within the LawBox store. In-app purchases are currently disabled on iOS and Android - we really don't want you to get stuck buying something that won't be kept current - but materials you've purchased in the past can still be downloaded, and will remain usable within the app for as long as you want to keep using them.

This suspension only affects the LawBox store for users with individual LawBox accounts; we will continue to provide updates for our association libraries.

We'd like to offer a big thank you to everyone who has supported our legal platform over the years, and inspired us to make it the best product we could.

LawBox is now offering digital bench books for judicial organizations, backed by the full power of our research platform. Learn more.

We've finished our second round of annual updates and now have 2014 codes and court rules available for all our jurisdictions. Together with our earlier Arizona and Delaware updates, these bring California, Florida, Illinois, New York and the U.S. Code up to date for the new year.

As always, we offer all our materials as individual purchases or as part of a bulk download package; see LawBox for Individuals to learn more.

We're very pleased to announce that LawBox has partnered with the Texas Children's Commission to bring the Texas Child Protection Law Bench Book to our platform. The Bench Book was created by the commission as a guide to current relevant law for judges working with child protection cases. Our platform enhances the Bench Book with search and navigation features, and provides annotations to current Texas and Federal statutes, as well as relevant court decisions.

The Child Protection Law Bench Book is publicly accessible at benchbook.texaschildrenscommission.gov.

Once again it's the season where we pour the eggnog, bob for reindeer, and update our code libraries for the year.

It’s a big day for LawBox, and for the whole open legal movement. We’re thrilled to announce that after months of hard work, the Free Law Project is today making available more than 1.5 million court opinions donated by LawBox, as part of its open-source, open-data CourtListener platform.

 

We're happy to announce the beta release of what we think is the world's first web-based statute editor and versioning client.

We're happy to announce that the Texas Center for the Judiciary has joined the LawBox family. We look forward to providing Texas judges with fast, mobile access to legal materials, including a mobile-optimized version of the popular Texas Bench Book.

We know it's been a long time coming, but here's the big news at last: after four years as an iOS-exclusive app, LawBox launches today on Google Play. Android 2.1 and up are supported, on tablets, phones and everything in between.
