Google Scholar has free cases back to 1950; subscription sites Versuslaw and Fastcase also have cases back to 1950. New Mexico Supreme and Appellate Court cases are published in the Pacific Reporter.

You can check the status of a pending bill through the Legislature's online Bill Finder. For question about current legislation or legislative history, call the Legislative Council Service at 505-986-4600.

Publications: The Bar Bulletin contains practice-related articles, rules orders, slip opinions, a calendar of meetings and workshops, and announcements. New Mexico does not have a real legal newspaper like the New York Law Journal or the Virginia Lawyer's Weekly.

Business Entities: The New Mexico Secretary of State posts a database of corporations and LLCs. The Agency also posts a UCC filings database, as well as a list of UCC search providers.
