Our Rating: 4.8/5

Our rating is based on our subjective judgment. Use our resources—including our rating and community ratings and reviews—to find the best fit for your firm.

Who Fastcase is For

Fastcase is an excellent option if you already have access through your bar association. Otherwise its comprehensive database is still very much worth the price, especially when compared to Westlaw and Lexis.

The AI Sandbox lets you use artificial intelligence in a secure environment to conduct that sort of work, then compare it with public legal data or Fastcase’s data. You can then have IBM’s Watson Analytics and Watson Developer Cloud analyze your findings to get more profound insights into your contracts, briefs, or other documents.

Secondary sources. The Fastcase library includes primary law (case law and statutes), legal blogs, law review articles, briefs, pleadings, expert witness databases, analytics, and secondary treatises. It includes 129 treatises from Aspen and CCH and over 100 titles from James Publishing, as well as 79 labor and employment treatises from Littler. Though Fastcase’s new imprint, Full Court Press, it has about 30 titles in production. Fastcase also provides access to law review articles through its partnership with HeinOnline.
