Findlaw was founded in 1995 in an attempt to give Internet users the ability to access information about their legal rights. The legal information is categorized into different sections on the home page, where one can find information on everything from immigration to employee rights. The Law Library section allows users to read any number of detailed guides written in simplified terms; the bookshelf provides full-text versions of various books on the subject. On the Findlaw message boards users communicate with one another regarding their own legal troubles and possible solutions.
