The MSBA's free online legal research tool, Casemaker, debuted its newest and most advanced version March 1. This version, which some users may have tested as CasemakerElite, offers significant advantages over
older versions. The user interface is friendly and intuitive; searches are fast and can be faceted to classify data; and, additional features enable users to review their search histories, create folders and notes for reference,
sort cases more efficiently. In a recent product review published by Outsell, Inc., a Chicago-based law librarian called Casemaker a viable "low-cost alternative to Westlaw and Nexis."

The Right Call for the Right Lawyer is the slogan trademarked by the American Bar Association for use by lawyer referral services meeting the ABA’s standards of professional experience criteria, accountability, and public service. This summer, the Lawyer Referral and Information Service of the Maine State Bar Association became one of fewer than 70 referral services nationwide authorized to use this slogan and the ABA seal of approval.
As an impartial not-for-profit professional and public service, the Lawyer Referral & Information Service is, more clearly now than ever, the most effective access point for members of the public looking for assistance with legal issues.
