Law Practice Management Tip of the Week

Make Your Case with Legal Research Through the MBA

As a member of the MBA, take advantage of the unlimited, free use of Casemaker, a comprehensive, online law library. A leading member benefit for members, Casemaker can be easily used to increase your efficiency and significantly reduce your legal research costs.

This comprehensive tool not only provides Massachusetts resources (caselaw, statutes and regulations plus additional special materials), but it also provides users access to caselaw and statutes for all 50 states and the federal system. Casemaker's “CaseCheck” feature provides quick links to cases referenced in your search, while its "Supercode" feature provides updates on the currency of statutes. These features are available in all of the state databases and the federal database.

The recent upgrade to Casemaker 2.1 makes available breadcrumb navigation, making for a smoother site interface. Live training webinars are offered for this recent upgrade. To sign up for a webinar, click here. For those not yet familiar with Casemaker, click here for a demo.
