(We understand how hard it is to always have a digital copy of the legal document. However, it must be ensured that the images have good resolution for best results).

  • How does CaseIQTM work?

    CaseIQTM allows you to obtain highly relevant search results directly from a brief (or other associated legal document), bypassing the need to reformulate case facts into searchable legal propositions. It automatically analyzes the language of your legal document for cited case laws, statutes and legal argument patterns. It then feeds this information into a complex predictive algorithm that leverages the archived intelligence of legal experts who've explored these issues previously to compile a list of highly relevant case laws, thereby highlighting potential missing points of law, or alternative arguments not appraised prior.
    Traditional keyword based legal research systems leverage Boolean operators based search to identify relevant case laws. While the ability to upload entire case briefs is a clear differentiator, what actually sets Case IQ apart is its ability to identify and understand the multiple legal propositions that might be involved within the brief, comprehend the underlying question(s) of law involved and provide on-point case laws.

  • Legal documents contain many issues and/or exhibits/affidavits/appendii. How would this influence my results ?

    CaseIQTM analyses all legal issues present in the uploaded document and how they may intertwine with associated facts. Accordingly, results that are significantly aligned with the uploaded legal document on issues/facts present within it will be recommended first. To explore a particular issue only, one may copy and paste an excerpt containing the issue and run CaseIQTM on it. Alternatively, one may also use a keyword filter to narrow down the results further.
