Have you ever wanted to carry the entire Delaware code in your pocket? Have there been times you’d wished you’d had Title 19, Delaware’s labor statutes available when you’re not at your computer or near a law library? Well, if you are the owner of an Apple iPhone, now you can. The entire Delaware code is now available as an app via the iTunes store for just $19.95. That’s insanely inexpensive compared to the price of the multi-volume book set you’d have to buy to get the Code in print. The app gives users access to the full Code in a searchable format, making it easy to find that obscure cite in a flash.
Of course, law firms have been very reluctant to the adaptation of the iPhone, so many lawyers who have iPhones also have to lug around a Blackberry to check their work e-mails. Still, a Blackberry is substantially less bulky than a couple of shelves worth of hard-bound legal books. Oh, what will technology give us lawyers next?
In case you’re not yet an iPhone user, you can always search the Delaware Code for free online, made available on the State of Delaware’s website.
