Casemaker’s premium services are FREE to Connecticut Bar Association members


Casemaker Premium is an online legal research engine similar to Lexis or Westlaw. Casemaker includes legal authorities for all fifty (50) states, plus the federal government.

Casecheck+ works like Shephard’s® and KeyCite® to notify you instantly of negative treatment, identifying whether your case law citations are still good law. Casecheck+ returns both positive and negative treatments instantly as you research and links to negative treatments so you can quickly review the citation history for both state and federal cases. It works seamlessly inside the new Casemaker and doesn’t require any extra steps to use.

CiteCheck analyzes every citation in your brief (or your opponent’s) and provides you with a report of good law, negative treatments and potential citation format errors. In just moments, you have this critical information.


Casemaker Digest allows members to receive daily summaries of the latest state and federal appellate decisions (within 12-24 hours of publication) classified by practice area. Choose one area, a few or all, and get exactly the information you need when you need it.
