Legal apps for smart phones and iPads

Here is a quick run down of some of the legal apps available for your smart phone. Most are iPhone/iPad apps but there are some apps for Android phones. Just a disclaimer, I haven’t had a chance to try all of these out. If you have any other suggestions let me know in the comments.

Free (or partly free) apps

LexisNexis Get Cases & Shepardize – Look up cases and Shepardize on your iPhone. The app is free but you need a LexisNexis password to get a case and shepardize.

Real Time Congress – Get updates from the US House and Senate.

PocketJustice – Recordings and transcripts of Supreme Court oral argument plus summaries of cases. The top 100 cases are free, the full version (600+ constitutional law cases) is $4.99. Also available for Android.

Nolo’s Plain English Law Dictionary – A free legal dictionary. It’s aimed at non-lawyers but could also be useful for law students.

ABA Journal – Get legal news from the ABA Journal on your iPhone or iPad.

Apps for a Fee

Black’s Law Dictionary – The standard legal dictionary now has an iPhone/iPad app version.

Law in a Flash and Sum and Substance – Two popular study guidesĀ  have an iPhone app version.
