What makes Casetext so much better at finding on-point cases?

Casetext's CARA A.I. is an artificial intelligence research assistant that finds cases for you. With CARA A.I., you don't need to think up just the right keywords. You upload the complaint or brief you're researching and CARA A.I. does the research for you. According to an independent study by the National Legal Research Group attorneys typically save 210 hours of research time per year by switching.
