Beginning October 1, Bar members will have access to a new legal research provider, Fastcase. For the entire month of October, you will be able to access both Fastcase and Casemaker research products. Just login to the Bar’s website as usual and come to this page to use either product.

To download and use Fastcase’s popular app NOW, click on the icon to the right. Sign up for free webinars or visit the training page, where they offer short video tutorials and one-page cheat sheets you can peruse on your own time.

IMPORTANT: After November 1, 2014, the Bar will only offer Fastcase. You should transfer or download any searches you have saved in Casemaker using these instructions.
