Search Hints

Search: FindLaw

The LawCrawler allows you to search for words or phrases connected with the Boolean operators AND, OR or NEAR (words within 10 of each other), and NOT . If you do not use a boolean operator, LawCrawler will search for the string of words in your query.

Note that if you use upper case letters, LawCrawler will be sensitive to that. However, the reverse is not true; your searches will be case insensitive if you use lower case letters.

Below are some examples:

pollution AND oil
This search finds all the documents that contain both the word pollution and the word oil .

Harvard OR Yale
This search finds all the documents that have either the word Harvard or the word Yale or both.

NOT Harvard
The search finds all the documents that do not contain the word Harvard .

Los Angeles NEAR City
