Using the New Fastcase 7 Legal Research Platform to Help Clients Better

Event Description

Deadline to Register: October 6, 2017 


Most MSBA members know that the Bar provides Fastcase as a free legal research service as a member benefit. Fastcase CEO Ed Walters will demonstrate the new Fastcase 7 platform, as well as a host of cool new features that will help occasional researchers search like a pro (and may teach pro researchers a few new tricks as well). From the Minnesota Digest, auto-linking briefs, the topical tag cloud, or Bad Law Bot, the world's first big data citator, there's a little something new for everyone. Fastcase is a nationwide legal research service that normally costs $995 per year, provided by the MSBA for free as a member benefit - find out how to use this powerful tool to supercharge your practice (without a super charge to your bottom line).
