Fastcase to Transition Users to Updated Version of Legal Research Application

Fastcase will transition all users to the newly updated version of the Fastcase legal research application starting Monday, September 21.

ISBA members receive complimentary access to Fastcase, an online legal research platform, as part of their ISBA membership.

An in-depth look at the changes and updated features of the new Fastcase interface is available online. Some of the new features include:

  • Briefs, Pleadings, Motions, and Orders

    Users can now access hundreds of millions of briefs, pleadings, motions, and orders provided by Docket Alarm (a Fastcase company). Now Fastcase users can access Docket Alarm’s 400+ million documents.
  • Ground-up Redesign of User Interface

    Fastcase users have provided a lot of feedback about Fastcase 7’s user interface. This release provides a full redesign of the entire interface. The biggest improvement: Fastcase now looks great on all screens—from 27” retina monitors down to the smallest phone.
  • Authority Check

    Finding a case’s status—or documents that cite to a statute or court rule—just became easier with thew newly redesigned Authority Check. Simply click on a document’s flag to see other documents that cite to it. Fastcase has separated the algorithmically determined Negative Treatment, making it quicker and easier to determine a document’s authority and status.

    I would like to be able to do an old-fashioned case-law search on Fastcase, but I can't figure how to do so.

    I can't access Fast Case and research Statutes and case law.

     

    What am I doing wrong?
