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

September 13, 2019 5:42 AM

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.

Additional Details about Casetext

Artificial Intelligence. 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 documents (complaints, briefs, and memos) that you upload to CARA. After uploading, 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.

Citator Service. Casetext’s citator service, SmartCite, is also informed by its AI assistant, CARA. Like most other citators, it will indicate bad law, good law, and cases that may be problematic. However, SmartCite will also indicate when cases rely on opinions that have been subsequently overruled.

Secondary Sources. Casetext, unfortunately, does not have much in the way of Secondary Sources. Unlike LexisNexis or WestLaw, it is mainly a Case Law, Statute, and Rules resource. You won’t find much proprietary resources, treatises, or journal articles.
