Mini-Training: CARA and Other "Next-Gen" Legal Research Tools
This mini-training will take place in the Instructional Lab in the DCLI (Room 130A).
This session will include a demonstration of Casetext and CARA (Case Analysis Research Assistant), a product from Casetext that finds cases that are potentially relevant to the subject of an uploaded legal document but which are not cited in that document. CARA can also provide suggestions of publicly-filed briefs that are relevant to the legal and factual issues in the uploaded legal document. CARA was named the American Association of Law Libraries' Product of the Year. We will also briefly examine Lexis Advance's Answers and Bloomberg Law's Points of Law.
Light food will be provided. All attendees who correctly answer 3 out of 4 questions on a follow-up quiz will be placed in a drawing for a $10 Starbucks card. All those who correctly answer 3 of the 4 questions will also be placed in a drawing to win an Amazon Echo Dot. The drawing for the Dot will take place on November 15th and will be taken from a pool of all eligible entries from all 4 Mini-Training sessions.
