See how Quick Check works

After writing a legal brief, simply and securely upload it to find new authority and related law. In addition to checking your own work, you can also analyze your opponent’s work to identify potential weaknesses in their arguments.

Once you securely upload your brief, Quick Check leverages state-of-the-art AI to examine the text, citations, and structure of your uploaded document to detect the legal issues covered. It then identifies recommendations that are highly relevant to the issues in the input document, but not otherwise cited.

In just minutes, Quick Check delivers an easy-to-review report that delivers relevant recommendations based on the headings in your document.

View the holding most related to the issue for which a recommended case is being provided, so you can verify immediately whether the case is in your favor or not.

Quickly review relevant text to help determine whether the recommendation is helpful or not.

See additional details for why a suggested authority might be important such as frequently cited, from a high court, or decided in the past 2 years.

Use filters, including documents recently viewed or foldered, to help you focus on the recommendations that are most relevant to your research.

Verify quotation accuracy in your work faster than ever and reduce the risk of costly mistakes. Plus, easily spot errors or omissions in your opponent's work and use them to your advantage.
