Be aware that anyone can publish anything on the internet.  This means that some legal resources online will be of high quality, and some will be of questionable quality.  Before you rely on online legal materials, you must as two questions. The first question is about accuracy. The second is about timeliness.  Keep in mind that an accurate statement of the law must be current. Even reputable sources can become substantially incorrect when the law discussed becomes obsolete over time.  Even when a reputable source (such as a law school website) is used, follow the old Russian proverb: Trust, but verify.
