If Casemaker looks a little different today, it’s because Casemaker’s premium services are now available to all ASB members without charge. As a part of our contract extension, you will now have access to a suite of tools that makes research faster and easier in addition to Casemaker’s broad and comprehensive libraries, which cover all 50 states and also provide Federal materials – all as a benefit of bar membership. The premium services include CaseCheck+, CiteCheck and CasemakerDigest.
- CaseCheck+ works like Shephard’s® and KeyCite® to notify you instantly of negative treatment, identifying whether your case is still good law. CaseCheck+ returns both positive and negative treatments instantly as you research and links to negative treatments so you can quickly review the citation history. It works seamlessly inside the new Casemaker and doesn’t require any extra steps to use.
- CiteCheck analyzes every citation in your brief (or your opponent’s) and provides you with a report of good law, negative treatments and potential citation format errors. In just moments, you have this critical information.
- CasemakerDigest allows you to receive daily summaries of the latest state and federal appellate decisions (within 12-24 hours of publication) classified by practice area. Choose one area, a few or all, and get exactly the information you need when you need it.
