A: Google Scholar is a good free resource. You could also go to a library at a local law school like UT, Belmont, or Vandy depending on where you are located. Those are probably the best resources.

A: I agree with my colleague. In addition, you can try CaseText (also a free service). There are a lot of scholarly articles that discuss the various provisions of Sarbanes-Oxley to which you are concerned. Many can be found through a google search. Good luck.
