Fastcase’s libraries include primary law from all 50 states, as well as deep federal coverage going back to 1 U.S. 1, 1 F.2d 1, 1 F.Supp. 1, and 1 B.R. 1. The Fastcase collection includes cases, statutes, regulations, court rules, and constitutions. Fastcase also provides access to a newspaper archive, legal forms, and a one-stop PACER search of federal filings through our content partners.
Fastcase’s libraries are searchable, just like you search the Web or traditional legal research services—by keyword (or “Boolean” search), natural language search, or citation lookup. What makes Fastcase’s solution so much smarter is its tools that find the best answers fast, saving you time, and making your practice more competitive to clients.
Fastcase has enhanced its Authority Check feature to show you where courts have noted that a case has been treated negatively (i.e., reversed or overruled on any grounds). The Bluebook requires that courts indicate negative history of cases cited within opinions. The new feature, “Bad Law Bot,” uses algorithms to find negative citation history. Bad Law Bot then flags those cases that have negative citation history and provides you with the links to those cases.
More than 600,000 lawyers have access to Fastcase, making it one of the world’s most trusted research services. Twenty-four state bar associations and dozens of other membership organizations have purchased Fastcase subscriptions for all of their members, most after rigorous review and thorough analysis. Lawyers love Fastcase because they know they can trust that they will find the most authoritative cases first.
