Fastcase keeps picking up new partnerships to expand the scope of their offerings well beyond their original focus on AI enhanced primary law. My first Fastcase blogpost 8 years ago was subtitled the “Little Engine that Could” and boy have they exceeded my expectations. Like the “energizer bunny – they just keep on going” and growing!
Starting today Fastcase subscribers will get access to select titles from the American Bar Association.
In the press release Steve Errick, Fastcase Chief Operating Officer, offers observations of the current state of legal publishing, ” While traditional legal publishers were ramping down their book divisions, the state bards and the ABA stepped up and kept legal book publishing vibrant…The vision for Fastcase is to make it easy for users to connect the legal research workflow dots, from primary law and public records, dockets, expert witness, legal analytics, and legal news,” Errick said. “The collection includes law review articles from HeinOnline, alerts, digests and blogs from LexBlog, and now our fast-growing collection of more than 1,000 market-leading expert treatises. To see it all come together and be able to showcase these fantastic books represents the culmination of 20 years of effort, and we feel like we’re really just getting started.”
Bryan Kaye, Director of editorial and Licensing for ABA Publishing is quoted in the press release: “We are excited to partner the ABA’s highly regarded book content with Fastcase’s dynamic platform. We share Fastcase’s vision to provide lawyers with the secondary content they need to excel in their work and advance the Rule of Law; and are pleased to join Fastcase in its commitment to grow creative, expert, sensible content written by lawyers for lawyers.”
Fastcase users will be able to search the new treatises within the Fastcase legal research platform immediately. For assistance with accessing the new secondary materials, users can contact customer support at 1-866-77-FASTCASE (866.773.2782). Those without a Fastcase subscription can try the new integration by signing up for a free trial at www.fastcase.com.
Print copies of the ABA titles will be available for purchase in conjunction with Fastcase’s other publishing partners, as well as its own publishing imprint, Full Court Press.
