Ohio State Bar Association and Casemaker legal research database

Casemaker is a legal research database containing federal and state legal materials.  Casemaker is available to all members of the Ohio State Bar Association (OSBA) and is also used by many other state bar associations in the U.S.  As law students you can get an OSBA membership for free.  Just fill in the OSBA law student application and mail it to the address listed on the application.   It is free unless you join a special section that costs extra.  Here is a link to the PDF copy of the application-> Download the Student Membership Application.

After your application is processed by the OSBA you will have access to the Casemaker database.  Other than typical licensing restrictions, there are no “law school only” password restrictions. You can use the database for school, work or for fun.

A brochure that explains the many benefits of having a student membership with the state bar can be found here -> Download the Membership Brochure.
