Clearly it's for free research, but why not if small firms do it?
In respect to Lexis/Westlaw, we hope that no one breaks any preexisting contracts they have. As independent contractors, our associates will be responsible for the means and methods they choose to utilize in completing projects.
First of all, we are a startup and make no claims to the pretensions of the traditional law industry. For this reason, we will advertise here, there and everywhere.
We do request your CV, which we would hope includes your school attended and GPA. LSAT, though, is our first-pass sorting mechanism.
