Business description: FindLaw is the highest-trafficked legal Web site, providing the most comprehensive set of legal resources on the Internet for lawyers, businesses, students and individuals. FindLaw began in 1995 as a list of Internet resources compiled by engineer and attorney Timothy Stanley and attorney Stacy Stern for a workshop of the Northern California Law Librarians. The response to the material was so positive that the team decided to post it on the Web so that others could use it as well. In January 1996, FindLaw was launched, and it continues to grow in scope as well as in popularity. In January 2001, FindLaw became part of West Group, the foremost provider of e-information and solutions to the U.S. legal market. While FindLaw continues to operate as an independent division, this strategic alliance has enabled a rapid expansion of the number and variety of free offerings, as well as the creation of new, more powerful services.
