New LawDesk CD-ROMs: Code of Federal Regulations and Analysis of New York Law
Lawyers Cooperative Publishing has added two new CD-ROMs--the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and New York Jurisprudence 2d (New York attorneys' standard research guide)--to its Law Desk CD-ROM library. Both new products were demonstrated at Legal Tech '94 at the New York City Hilton in January.
CFR titles 1-50 are contained on a single compact disc. Attorneys can word search the full-text or a hierarchical scheme of CFR titles, parts and sections. Electronic links between items of related information allow the attorney to electronically jump from item to item without requiring multiple searches, and a "cut and paste" feature makes it possible to incorporate CFR text into word processing documents. The CFR disc will be updated on a regular basis.
"Searching the CFR traditionally has been a tedious process," said Barbara DeYoung, director of LawDesk product development. "But with CFR LawDesk, attorneys will be able to find and retrieve any needed CFR section with just a few keystrokes. And because it's CD-ROM, there are no online charges to worry about."
The new CFR disc also features hypertext links to the USCS (United States Code Service) LawDesk disc, which will allow attorneys to move instantly between cross-referenced material in the two products. Split screen displays are supported. "You can view the statutes on one side of the screen," DeYoung noted, "while displaying relevant CFR sections on the other."
New York Jurisprudence 2d is a modern encyclopedic text covering the entire body of New York Law--substantive and procedural, civil and criminal. This essential practice tool provides concise analysis of legal principles based on careful review of all New York law. …
