The legal research platform Casemaker is announcing today an expansion of its partnership with the global legal research company vLex by which its members will get access to Vincent, vLex’s artificial intelligence legal research assistant.

Subscribers who receive access to Casemaker through bar association affinity plans are entitled to a one-week free trial of Vincent and then 50 percent off first-year pricing. Other subscribers will also be able to access Vincent through Casemaker, but not with the free trial or special pricing.

As I wrote here two years ago, Casemaker already partners with vLex in a joint licensing agreement that gives users of both services access to each other’s libraries of legal materials.

As I explained in a post last September, Vincent is in the same vein as CARA from CasetextClerk from Judicata, and EVA from ROSS Intelligence in that you upload a brief, legal document or court opinion, and it analyzes the document and uses the document’s language and citations to find related cases, statutes, books, journal articles, contract models, and more.

Vincent is built on Iceberg, an AI platform for massive content projects that vLex initially developed to facilitate its own publishing of legal materials.

Vincent is unique among AI-driven legal research tools for its ability to simultaneously analyze documents in two languages, English and Spanish, as well as across multiple jurisdictions, licensed databases such as Casemaker, and a firm’s internal knowledge management resources.

One-click access to Vincent will be available to users of Casemaker4, the next-generation of the Casemaker research platform that is currently in beta testing. Already being rolled out to select bar association users, Casemaker4 promises improved search speed, a more intuitive interface, and a mobile-friendly responsive design.
