Additional Details about Casemaker

Pricing

Casemaker

Members of 28 state and local bar associations get access to the basic version of this service gratis.  It’s definitely worth checking with your bar association to see if you’re able to use this service for free. Even if your association does not have an agreement, however, the pricing is generally around $60/month if you pay monthly.

Casemaker Pro

For only a slightly higher fee (ex. $35/month more in TN), you get access to all the Casemaker tools through Casemaker Pro. This includes Casecheck+, Citecheck, and Casemaker Digest.

Other Services

Citator Service

Its citator, Casecheck+, gives Shepard’s and KeyCite a run for their money. They have top-notch legal editors overseeing its process. And they are working to continually improve it. This certainly makes it a competitive and lower-cost alternative to the Westlaw and LexisNexis citators. However, Casecheck+ is only available with a Casemaker Pro subscription.

Secondary sources

While litigators will find this service is useful for case law and statutory research at the state and federal levels, its secondary source catalog is vanishingly thin. The few secondary sources it does offer require a subscription to Libra. If you regularly rely on articles and reports from bar journals and law reviews, this service almost certainly is not for you.

Tribal Court Opinions

Casemaker is one of the few online legal research companies that boasts a collection of tribal court decisions from around the United States. Tribal court opinions can be challenging to find online, so having this resource is a huge help for those of you who practice tribal law.
