20 For 2020: The Legal Tech Trends that Defined the Year

Whoa, what the f*&% just happened? This was a year few of us will ever forget. It brought untold hardships for many and unfamiliar challenges for all of us. To those who suffered losses of loved ones or illness, to those who lost their jobs or their homes, to any and all who suffered scars this year, I offer my heartfelt condolences. But in the world of legal technology and innovation, the phrase I heard often repeated this year was “silver lining.” It was a silver lining in the form of an accel...

Legal research no longer limited to keywords

Longtime readers of SCOTUSblog are by now familiar with Casetext’s legal search tool. It solves an ever-present need for our team: finding opinions from all levels of the court system for our articles and case pages.

Rather than searching cases by name, attorneys need a way to search case law to find support for specific propositions. This task is challenging not just because the com...

Changing employment law landscape aided by new legal tech

On June 15, 2020, the Supreme Court handed down its landmark decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, ruling that the ban on sex discrimination in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 also prohibits workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
