Casemaker Weekly - October 23rd

Wednesday, October 23, 2019  
A good search starts with searching the right jurisdiction! This week we review the Jurisdiction/Compilations menu in Casemaker4. Let's get started!

Casemaker4 Jurisdiction and Compilations Menu
Directly to the left of the bar that you can type your search query in is our Jurisdiction and Compilations menu. In blue text on the search bar you will see what jurisdictions and compilations are currently selected.

Clicking on the menu will allow you to select the jurisdictions you wish to conduct research in. This can be any number of state, Federal or trial courts. On the left side of the menu above the list of states is the Related Federal box. Checking this box will allow you to receive results from your selected state or states as well as any federal material relevant to that jurisdiction specifically. Similarly, if you are conducting research in the Circuit Opinions, you can also use the Related State box to return results from your selected circuits and the corresponding state-level results as well.

At the far-right side of the menu, you have the opportunity to select any or all compilations as well. Casemaker’s default is All Compilations but if you are interested in only conducting a search in the admin code, for example, you can make that designation here.

At the bottom of this menu, there are other buttons available. The first is Save To My Settings. If the settings that you've just selected are your most normally used settings when conducting research in the Casemaker system, then it would be beneficial for you to click this button so that those settings are saved. This way they're established as your default and will be chosen automatically for you every time you login. If you had previously conducted a search outside of your norm and would like to revert to your default, you can click the Use My Settings button, which is the next button on the screen. If you had multiple boxes checked and you decide that you're going to completely change what you're doing, you have the opportunity to clear all of your checks with just one click as well.

After you've made all of your jurisdiction and compilation selections be sure to click the blue save button to save them and continue with your search.

That is all for this week! We hope you are enjoying the new Casemaker4 system. A new system can seem overwhelming we know - but you can register for a free Casemaker4 Webinar here - https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/rt/374519348375591435
