Jureeka! is a Firefox add-on that looks for legal citations in ordinary webpages and turns them into hyperlinks that lead to a free version of the cited source (mostly U.S. law), as featured on Legal Writing Prof Blog. The JUREEKA! blog lists the recognizable citations, such are citations to US cases in regional reporters (A.2d, P.2d, P.3d, N.E.2d, N.W.2d, S.E.2d, and S.W.3d). Jureeka! retrieves materials only by the recognizable citation; however it is a dynamic tool because it is not known where the case is going to come from. It seems to work like a crawler searching for citations and linking to the freely available legal materials on the Internet, which can be useful when one does not have an access to a subscription legal database.
Feel free to share your feedback!
