This article was written by Glenice Joy Jornales, as published in The Nexus, the official schoolpaper of the MSU-College of Law-Iligan Extension. This was also published in her blog, "Over A Cup of Coffee".

Half the world is sleeping, and half the world is online. (Major in Facebook, anyone?)

Well, not every one is using the internet checking out the updates on their Facebook profiles. There are also some of us who are visiting Google for information relevant to the study of law and the legal profession.
 
Good thing there's the Internet.
There are times when we get annoyed with our dear friend Mr. Google because of the irrelevant sites included on its results page. If you want to skip Google in searching for law notes, SCRA, rules of courts and case rulings, here are the best sites that you can visit, browse and subscribe to.

     1. Supreme Court of the Philippines Website (www.sc.judiciary.gov.ph) – This is the main website of the judiciary department of the Philippines where you’ll find a lot of legal stuffs and updates on judiciary system.

     2. Chan Robles Virtual Law Library (www.chanrobles.com) - This site provides full SCRA transcripts, past bar exam questions, and past and existing laws. You can also find past bar exam questions here, but not all questions have suggested answers provided on them.

     3.LawPhil.Net (www.lawphil.net) – This is my personal favorite source for full text SCRA cases. I prefer it over Chan Robles since it has a better webpage color (white and lavender).

   4.BATASNatin (www.batasnatin.com) - This is a good site for both for the newbies who are trying to have a good grasp with the legal profession and the Philippine laws, and for those professionals and lawyers who are trying to sharpen and continually update themselves with the going-ons in the judiciary system via the internet.

     5. Scribd (http://www.scribd.com/) - This is not a site exclusively dedicated for the legal arena, but this is a great source of law reviewers and past bar exam questions (either with or without suggested answers), and case digests uploaded by many Scribd users.
 
Now if you are looking for case digests, you can also find them on the internet. Some of the best sites to search for case digests include the JLP-Law Blog Site, CaseDigests.blogspot.com, USTLawReview.com, HowardsCaseDigests.webs.com, and PinayLawyer.Com.

There are times that our head can’t handle dealing with the whole SCRA transcript, and a case digest helps us understand the whole thing that would have sounded to Greek to us (this is especially true for those who are beginners in the study of law).

If you think that these sources can’t give you what you are looking for, you can search them up on Google or Yahoo. Happy surfing!
