Bankruptcy Courts to Receive Free Access to Advanced Legal Research Technology Through New Partnership Between ABI and Casetext

Alexandria, Va. — A new partnership between the American Bankruptcy Institute and Casetext will provide bankruptcy judges and clerks with free unlimited access to Casetext’s full research suite, including its unique artificial intelligence (A.I.) research technology, CARA A.I. This technology allows legal researchers to upload a brief or complaint from their litigation to instantly find tailored research of authorities with the same facts and legal issues in the same jurisdiction.
