Quick Check Judicial Added to Westlaw Edge
An AI-based tool designed for judges but also a necessity for lawyers, Quick Check Judicial has been added as a new Westlaw Edge feature within Quick Check.
Quick Check Judicial allows users to upload multiple briefs or memos from a single matter to surface highly relevant authority that neither party included and provides fast, automated review of citations and quotations.
Justice Randy J. Holland, retired, Delaware Supreme Court, noted the value Quick Check Judicial provides. “From a judge’s point of view, you want to be confident that you understand each party’s position and you want to be confident that you understand the state of the law. Quick Check Judicial allows you to do that efficiently and accurately.”
Holland added, “Attorneys only argue before the court so often, and even though the judge might hear the same cases a lot, attorneys aren’t arguing them every day. No matter how good a lawyer is, it’s hard to stay up to date with everything, but with Quick Check Judicial, you can go into court with confidence.”
“In our conversations with customers, they reiterated the importance of ensuring that nothing is missed or omitted in their own documents, but maybe even more importantly knowing what different information was or was not used by opposing counsel,” said Carol Jo Lechtenberg, senior director, Westlaw Product Management. “Quick Check Judicial delivers that insight and more, all while saving a substantial amount of time for lawyers but proving equally as valuable for judges and law clerks by providing a holistic view of the matters before them.”
Quick Check Judicial is available to all Westlaw Edge subscribers. Legal professionals across courts in all 50 states and the District of Columbia have access to Westlaw Edge, ensuring that they have access to state-of-the-art legal products.
