Recently Launched: PACER Training Site
From the Pacer.gov Web Site:
The Judiciary has launched a new PACER training site where current and future users can learn how to use PACER. You don’t have to register, and there is no charge for accessing this training area. The site includes data from real cases filed in the New York Western District Court between 1/1/2007 and 7/1/2007 so users can get a feel for the type of case data and documents available through PACER.

The goal of the site is to create a free and competitive real time alert tool for the U.S. judicial system.
At present, the site has daily information regarding all precedential opinions issued by the 13 federal circuit courts and the Supreme Court of the United States. Each day, we also have the non-precedential opinions from all of the Circuit courts except the D.C. Circuit. This means that by 5:10pm PST, the database will be updated with the opinions of the day, with custom alerts going out shortly thereafter.

The Free Law Reporter™ is where free law meets accessibility. It’s an electronic case reporter that freely publishes nearly every recent appellate and supreme court opinion, from state to federal US courts.
FLR uses the RECOP project as a starting point, making its opinions searchable online and available as ebook collections, with more features in development.
