Best Firefox Add-Ons for Lawyers

Filed under: Tech Tips — Tags: , — uhlawlibrary @ 8:00 am

Relevant add-ons make Firefox the best browser for lawyers.  The best add-ons for legal researchers are Zotero, Citegenie, Jureeka, and Recap.  If you have an add-on you’d like to recommend, comment on this posting.

  • Zotero because it keeps track of all of your online research.  It’s available from any computer provided you use the version that syncs and you register.
  • Citegenie because it gives pretty darned good Bluebook citations from Westlaw and Lexis materials.
  • Jureeka because any legal citation on a page that is available for F*R*E*E turns into a hyperlink on your page.  Stop paying for material that is free.
  • Recap improves the PACER experience while helping PACER users build a free and open repository of public court records.  PACER stands for “Public Access to Court Electronic Records.” It is the website the federal judiciary uses to make public records available to the general public.  PACER is primarily used by attorneys to access legal documents relating to federal court cases.
