WELCOME TO THE PDF LAW JOURNAL & BLOG
Thank you for visiting and please return as we build the pdfLaw database and links to Courts nationwide.
Our mission is to offer all law, in PDF format, free to the public. We also want to offer reviews and links to PDF tools and related resources for legal professionals and highlight the Power of PDF.
The 1991 Camelot project of Adobe’s co-founder John Warnock, and Postscript inventor, became the Adobe PDF specification. Now available for free and shared as an open source format. Today you can download a free PDF reader for every OS platform, and, a PDF document is accessible with every major browser. In 2008 Adobe released PDF as an open standard [ISO 32000-1] and is now an international electronic document standard.
PDF is the standard relied upon by the US Supreme Court, Federal Courts, the IRS, and by every law firm and paralegal on a daily basis.
