On Tuesday, Dec. 16, I will be moderating a free webinar that will look at how “big data” analytics are being used to provide new windows into legal research. Specifically, we will look at Ravel Law and PacerPro, two tools that are providing new ways of looking at case law and case information.

Ravel — which I wrote about in an ABA Journal article about “visual law” — uses visualization and analytics technology to move beyond basic research and reveal different perspectives on the law. PacerPro, which I also reviewed in the ABA Journal, helps you better access, organize and analyze the billion documents hosted in the federal courts’ PACER system.

Speakers for the webinar will be Daniel Lewis, co-founder and CEO of Ravel, and Gavin McGrane, CEO and founder of PacerPro.

The webinar is at 3 p.m. Eastern time, noon Pacific time, on Dec. 16. To register or for more information, visit the registration page.
