JADE updated to include significant new legal research features, including Stars
As ever, we have been concentrating on behind the scenes changes, including improved parsing of judgments within the JADE professional legal research platform.
When you are logged in, you can give a star ranking to your favourite cases. This release contains stars, spell checking, enhanced notifications and tips, and further streamlining ‘under the hood’, particularly to the usability of CaseTrace.
We all have favourites. With JADE you can remember them. This will influence the searches you perform, and we will give you lots of enhanced features based upon your star rankings. You will have to watch the dressing room to see the stars which emerge.
If you can think of enhancements, please be sure to give us some feedback and tell us how you would like the stars to appear.
It can be tricky to get those case names right. JADE tries to help you with enhanced “did you mean” functionality.
Did you mean is not perfect. After all, JADE is designed for legal professionals. The internet is a pwoferul toole. Mispeling is badde.
Remember, that many decisions contain significant spelling errors. This means that if you spell something correctly, it does not find it!
For example, we were going to use the example of “Comonwealth” for “Commonwealth”, but that error appears in too many cases!
We are working on the wider problem of spelling and accuracy in a forthcoming release. You will be amazed with our ideas. We also hope that you will like them as much as CaseTrace and our JADE Marks.
- IMPROVED: The CaseTrace overlays now provide better indications of cited paragraphs. That is, incoming citations to particular paragraphs. We were previously counting every occurrence. We now only count the number of cases.
- IMPROVED: JADE CaseTrace Report features many more and more accurate paragraph pop-ups. Of course, we are not perfect and if you discover issues, just let us know with some feedback.
- IMPROVED: Refined shading within a case report gives a hint with pop-up cited case information.
