Chicago, IL, March 12, 2019 – Casemaker today announced an expanded partnership with global legal research provider vLex that will give members of the Casemaker Bar Association Consortium access to vLex’s industry leading intelligent legal research assistant, Vincent. The announcement was made at the 2019 Chief Staff Executives Retreat of the National Association of Bar Executives in Chicago.
Built on top of vLex’s cloud-based data platform Iceberg, Vincent is the only Artificial Intelligence tool that can simultaneously analyze documents in two languages (English and Spanish), across multiple jurisdictions, as well as public sources, licensed databases such as Casemaker, and a firm’s internal knowledge management resources.
“We’re thrilled to announce this next step in our partnership with vLex,” said Sarah Gorman, Chief Operating Officer at Casemaker. “Members of our consortium bar associations will greatly benefit from the ability to go beyond traditional keyword or Boolean search into a more robust contextual search that begins with Casemaker’s rich content and is accelerated by artificial intelligence.”
Users of Casemaker4, the next generation legal research platform that is currently in beta testing, will enjoy one-click access to Vincent. Members of Casemaker Consortium Bar Associations will be entitled to a one-week free trial of Vincent, as well as an exclusive 50% discount off first year pricing.
“This is an exciting time for vLex,” shared Lluis Faus, CEO. “By creating this direct pathway from Casemaker4 to Vincent, hundreds of thousands of U.S. attorneys will now have the ability to tap into the power of AI at unprecedented scale.”
Under the terms of an existing agreement, vLex users will continue to receive access to Casemaker’s full collection of U.S. federal and 50-state primary law content. Likewise, Casemaker4 users will retain the ability to search databases of international legal materials provided by vLex.
