Advanced legal technology

Expedite legal research tasks with AI-enhanced capabilities that will help save you time and be more strategic.

Quick Check

This intelligent document analysis tool enables you to simply upload a brief — yours or your opponent’s — and in just minutes it identifies any bad law and surfaces any additional highly relevant authority, as well as authority contrary to what your opponent cited.

Use Quick Check to improve the quality and thoroughness of your work without sacrificing time.

Litigation Analytics

Powered by the largest collection of federal and state dockets, Litigation Analytics compiles information on judges, courts, damages, attorneys, law firms, and case types to help you build the strongest case strategy across the most practice areas.

Know your opponent in terms of their experience, success record on motions, and how the legal organization fares for a motion in front of your judge.

KeyCite Overruling Risk

Overruling Risk warns you when a point of law has been implicitly undermined based on its reliance on an overruled or otherwise invalid prior decision.

This citation safeguard reduces the possibility of being at risk for something you didn’t know existed. It uses artificial intelligence to uncover when a case may be stating the law in a way that has been invalidated.

WestSearch Plus

Avoid crafting complex queries with the most advanced legal search engine, powered by artificial intelligence and built on our proprietary editorial enhancements.

Enter your search terms and WestSearch Plus will anticipate your search objectives to instantly provide answers to thousands of types of legal questions to get you to the heart of your matter faster.

Statutes Compare & Regulations Compare

Streamline your legal research with the click of a button and instantly compare any two versions of a statute or regulation to see exactly what has changed over time.

Jurisdictional Surveys

Speed up your survey creation by retrieving a customized and relevant compilation of laws across all topics and U.S. jurisdictions.

Quickly assess laws across jurisdictions, understand variances as they relate to compliance activities, refine a legal argument, or identify new or emerging policy trends.
