Legal resources available

The New Jersey Digital Legal Library

Posted by Damika Webb on February 16th 2011
Here’s a good source of information for people interested in affordable housing in NJ. The Rutgers University Library for the Center for Law and Justice hosts the New Jersey Digital Legal Library which provides public access to materials of New Jersey law and legal history. It is a good source for understanding the legal history and current events in affordable housing. In the Affordable Housing Archive you can find the history of Mount Laurel, the Mount Laurel opinions, related statutes and current developments.

The Ocean County Library also has two databases that might prove helpful to you.
Legal forms are available online from the library's Web site: . This database is available 24/7 and can be accessed from your home or remotely.
Westlaw can be accessed from the Toms River, Brick or Lakewood branches during normal business hours.  The database provides access to NJ Statutes Annotated; NJ Court cases from 1790 to the present; NJ Administrative Code; and the NJ Register.  One can also find the text of federal laws including the US Code Annotated as well as US Supreme Court, federal district and 3rd Circuit Court case decisions.
The databases are found on the library Web site's home page under the "Research and Info" pull down menu.
