You may remember the days of paper. We do. We still have a lot of it and we use it every day. This is one of our research vaults. It’s where the JADE editorial team extracts meaning, sometimes with a pencil, always with love of the law. Yellow pads at the ready.
The JADE Legal Research HQ is the location of our research vault. This enormous facility is built for the future. The vault is more than 2,000 metres long and 300 metres wide. We estimate that it will provide us with sufficient storage for legal primary materials until at least 2050.
(We waited until the lunch break to take this photo.) Usually you would find out editors at the tables ready to pounce like cats upon challenging legal research questions. Robots have no place here. Legal knowledge is too precious to squander on machine learning or algorithms. We are human scale.
