The Law Library's PLI PLUS database subscription provides access to Practising Law Institute treatises, course handbooks, legal forms, program transcripts and answer books covering a range of legal practice areas. This includes all of its more than 90,000 legal research documents in 25 practice areas, extending back to 1980.  The search system allows users to discover book titles as well as chapter titles.  PLI PLUS is a good resource to identify emerging legal topics. Another special feature is a seamless link to case law via Fastcase that allows users to read a case discussed in its publications.  The service strives to add new content every month via new titles or content updates to ensure that users have access to the most relevant secondary source legal documents. Contributors who update their content regularly include renowned legal experts and law firms (e.g., Jones Day) who can be depended upon to be aware of recent changes and developments in the law. For each practice area, PLI PLUS includes the following types of secondary publications:  Treatises, Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Course Handbooks, and more than 80 Answer Books, which are organized in a question and answer format and include checklists and practice pointers. The scope of PLI Plus topics encompasses civil and business law topics, including corporate, health, diversity, international, intellectual property, and litigation. Plus its PLI Pro Bono section covers criminal. It is available to CWRU faculty and students off-campus via VPN. Below are some examples of the offerings available.
