Re-Introducing Fastcase

Event Description

Deadline to Register: Tuesday, December 10, 2019


About the Presentation:

A Fastcase subscription to 50-state primary materials and other resources is included in every MSBA membership. Fastcase was founded in 1999 by Ed Walters and Phil Rosenthal to ‘democratize the law.’ Since then, a lot has changed in the legal research. Artificial Intelligence, visualizations, and data analytics are all now part and parcel of most legal research tools.

In this session, we’ll examine how Fastcase might be holding true to its original mission and we’ll demonstrate how to perform critical research tasks in Fastcase’s latest version 7. In addition to the basics of search, review, and delivery, we’ll review…

  • Efficient re-search and navigation in primary materials

  • Unique Fastcase tools like Forecite and the Interactive Timeline

  • Clio and Mobile Integrations

  • Related services Docket Alarm and NextChapter
