How much is your firm currently spending on a legal research service? Robert Ambrogi, author of the blog LawSites, has recently posted a detailed review of the new and improved Casemaker, the legal research service provided free of charge to all State Bar of Michigan members. Mr. Ambrogi gives the improved Casemaker high marks for the new “simple and intuitive” user interface and the “universal search from every page.” His review also explains how to use additional new enhancements which include User Created Folders, Track Research by Clients, and Add Notes to Documents. The post includes a succinct explanation of the premium product Casemaker+ which includes the Casemaker version of Shepard’s and Key Site, and CiteCheck which allows you to upload a document and run it through a citation checker. Take a few minutes to read this post, then go to the Member Area of the SBM website and try Casemaker yourself.
