Casemaker Weekly - July 25th

Wednesday, July 25, 2018  

This week we show you how to learn more about Casemaker's features, how Autocorrect works and getting in the area with proximity searching - Let's get started!

 

Casemaker Features

On the toolbar above the list of states on the homepage, you will find the Features link. The Features link gives you access to CasemakerDigest and Citecheck, descriptions of our additional services as well as information about what Casemaker covers. You also can find information about our partners and what services they offer. If you are unfamiliar with Casemaker the Features link is a great place to get an idea of all you can do with the service.

Citation Format and Autocorrect

Casemaker uses the Bluebook citation format and will auto-correct your citations for you. For example, if you enter 567 f3d 1120 in the search bar, Casemaker will correct your entry to 567 F.3d 1120. Both regional reporter and state reporter citations will work! If you need to disable this for any reason, simply check the Turn off Autocorrect box before performing your search.

Using proximity search

If you type in the word tax and the word annuity in the search bar Casemaker will pull up every document that has the word tax and the word annuity in it. Sadly that may not be what you are looking for. Proximity searches are great for getting closer to the issue. When using Casemaker w/ means “within” so w/5 would mean within five words. So for example, if you wanted to find cases where the word tax was mentioned near the word annuity you could enter tax w/5 annuity. If you wanted to find tax mentioned a bit further from annuity you could try tax w/25 annuity.

That is all for this week! We will back with more tips and tricks next week. Thanks again for making Casemaker a Valued Member Benefit.
