Westlaw Edge guided tour
Explore the capabilities that make Westlaw Edge the premier legal research platform.
Get detailed profiles on judges, venues, opposing counsel & more
What cases did my judge rely on for my issue and how often? How experienced is opposing counsel for a particular issue? How long will it take to resolve this type of case in front of my judge? These are just a few of the questions that Litigation Analytics on Westlaw Edge was designed to help you answer. This game-changing feature mines court and docket data to provide data-driven insights on judges, courts, attorneys, law firms, and case types in easy-to-understand reports so you can build your strongest possible case strategy.
Find cases that traditional research may have missed
Use Quick Check on Westlaw Edge to quickly analyze your work – or your opponent’s – for highly relevant authority, related briefs, memoranda, and secondary sources that traditional research may have missed. Simply upload a document to Quick Check and it will combs the text, citations, and structure of your brief or motion to detect the legal issues covered. It then identifies recommendations to be highly relevant to the issues in the input document, but not otherwise cited.
Know which cases your judge tends to rely on
Fully integrated with Litigation Analytics, Precedent Analytics lets you quickly gain visibility into what arguments have worked for a judge based on what the judge has actually said and cited to previously. Additionally, Precedent Analytics harnesses the power of the Key Number System to quickly narrow in on a topic, so you can easily find what citations, other judges, and jurisdictions your judge relies upon when drafting their opinions.
