Things You Might Want to Know

Meet CARA. The Case Analysis Research Assistant, or CARA, is Casetext’s AI-backed legal research tool that helps you discover relevant cases and briefs based on complaints, briefs, and memos that you upload to CARA. After you upload your brief, CARA will analyze the brief and make all subsequent research more intelligent, instantly returning relevant cases that are on the same facts, legal issues, jurisdiction, and motion at issue. It will also surface relevant statutes, articles, and briefs filed by other attorneys on the same topic. This means that you don’t have to doubt if you missed anything after you already spent countless hours on research.

Quick search. Many legal research databases feel cumbersome with long page-load times. With Casetext’s underlying code, results feel more like a Google search, showing up almost instantaneously and feeling relevant to your work, which saves you time and energy.

Unique proprietary databases. Casetext features unique proprietary databases. For example, the “black letter law” database is perfect for unearthing that one perfect snippet that will drive your argument home.

    They don't discriminate against alleged "non-lawyers"

    Out of all of these “exclusive” AI sites, CaseText is the only one that understands that you don’t have to have a bar card to be a lawyer. In fact, the SCOTUS has affirmed this fact multiple times. Other company’s just don’t get that. With the rise of pro se litigants these days, one would think that SOMEONE would catch on, but no….

    I wish CaseText had as robust tools as Westlaw, but Westlaw is an ABSOLUTE joke.
