Q. What is Fastcase?
A. Fastcase is the leading next-generation legal research service that puts a comprehensive national law library and smarter and more powerful searching, sorting, and visualization tools at your fingertips.
Fastcase’s libraries include primary law from all 50 states, as well as deep federal coverage going back to 1 U.S. 1, 1 F.2d 1, 1 F.Supp. 1 and 1 B.R. 1. The Fastcase collection includes cases, statutes, regulations, court rules and constitutions. Fastcase also provides access to a newspaper archive, legal forms and a one-stop PACER search of federal filings through our content partners.
Fastcase’s libraries are searchable, just like you search the Web or traditional legal research services – by keyword (or "Boolean" search), natural language search or citation lookup. Fastcase's tools find the best answers fast, saving you time and making your practice more competitive to clients.
