Black’s Law Dictionary (and other legal apps) now in iTunes


The ABA Journal reports that the latest version of Black’s Law Dictionary is now available for download on iTunes.  This is the first venture by West (publisher of WestLaw) into the iPhones app arena.  For those of you who are interested, be forewarned that the price is a litlle high compared to that of typical iPhone apps.  Whereas iTunes offers Law Pod apps for 99 cents, and a version of the Constitution for free, Westlaw is asking $49.99 for Black’s Law Dictionary.  I think somebody at West may be just a little overly optimistic.

The Law Pod apps on iTunes include 99 cent versions of the Federal Rules of Evidence, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, and the U.S. Constitution.  Another publisher, David Finucane, offers a variety of legal apps at the iTune store.  These include a $4.99 version of California statutes, a $2.99 version of Florida statutes, a $2.99 version of the U.S. Code, and more.  There are other legal apps in the iTunes store, but many of these are aimed at law students.  I think we’ll see a wider number of legal apps as the iPhone market matures (the app store has only been open a little over 9 months).

Attorney Advertising

No representation is made that the quality of legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers. The hiring of a law firm is a serious decision that should not be based on advertising alone.
