Bench & Bar of Minnesota is the official publication of the Minnesota State Bar Association.

Complete B&B archive coming to Fastcase

Every issue of Bench & Bar of Minnesota, starting back at the magazine’s inception in 1943, will soon be available—and fully searchable—to MSBA members. The MSBA has been working with Hein Online to digitize every issue of the magazine. Later this summer Hein, in partnership with the MSBA and Fastcase, will make the entire library available to MSBA members at no cost through Fastcase.

Fastcase is a comprehensive, nationwide law library, including case law, statutes, regulations, court rules, constitutions, and law review articles. It’s one of the largest online law libraries in the world. And it’s completely free for MSBA members.

Fastcase has been working to expand its secondary sources and premium content, including the publication of its own law journals. In a recent survey, Clio found that Fastcase was the number two legal research tool behind Westlaw (and within half a percent). Bar associations like the MSBA offer Fastcase as part of membership to level the playing field and provide equal access to legal research for all lawyers. Fastcase offers four monthly CLE webinars; if you’d like to learn more about this FREE member benefit (and get CLE credit), visit
