The Virtual Chase, an online legal research website founded by law librarian Genie Tyburski, is now powered by Justia. The re-launched Virtual Chase features a new design, as well as additional online legal research and community resources for law librarians and other legal professionals. Legal resources on The Virtual Chase are now organized in four broad categories: Community, Legal Research, Law Libraries and Other Resources.
The Legal Research section provides federal and state law and government guides, links to general legal resources such as portals and search engines, and legal practice areas research guides. This section also includes resources on finding a lawyer, electronic discovery, and locating expert witnesses. Those interested in business research will find resource links to business news, company information and public company filings. Users may also browse through the extensive resources and public records available online to researchers.
The Virtual Chase also provides guidance to researchers on how to evaluate online sources through a series of articles and checklists on information quality.
