LawMoose launched in September, 2000, is believed to have been the first U.S. regional legal search engine operating its own independent web crawler.
Initially LawMoose provided a searchable index drawn from Minnesota law and government sites. Later, it added a similar capability for Wisconsin law sites and select general legal reference starting point sites.
LawMoose has since evolved into a hybrid legal knowledge environment, with a thesaurus-based topical map of legal and governmental web resources, the Minnesota Legal Periodical Index maintained by the Minnesota State Law Library, and supplemental search results.
