Analyze briefs with Quick Check
Quickly complete a comprehensive review of your brief – or your opponent’s. Quick Check securely analyzes briefs to suggest highly relevant authority that traditional research may have missed. Use it to check your own work, identify potential weaknesses in your opponent’s document, or compare multiple filings from a matter.
Review data and opponent information with Litigation Analytics
Develop a stronger litigation strategy and better manage client expectations in terms of cost, timing, and likely outcome. Informed by data points mined from litigation documents, Litigation Analytics can give you insight on your judge’s ruling tendencies, your opponent’s experience on a particular issue, and more.
Identify implicit risks with KeyCite Overruling Risk
Celebrating 25 years of KeyCite on Westlaw
25 years ago, we introduced KeyCite, which has always been relied upon as the most accurate, complete, and trusted citator to verify whether you are relying on good law. The foundation of KeyCite and our commitment to customer-inspired innovation has led to the development of state-of-the-art features like KeyCite Overruling Risk.
Traditional citators identify when a case has been explicitly invalidated by a subsequent ruling. However, they don’t warn when similar cases may have also been implicitly overruled or abrogated by subsequent new developments in the law. KeyCite Overruling Risk marks cases that have no direct citations pointing to their invalidity.
