Meet the JADE Research Vault … it’s an advance

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.

Our Legal Research Desktop


JADE Advance … we’re already there … transforming research

It’s been a big week of advance here at the JADE Legal Research HQ. As always, the team has been experimenting with all kinds of new ideas to bring you the best possible legal research experience. In a world where everything old seems new again, we have created the first dedicated 3D surround desktop research desk, the JADE Advance Research Sphere (JARS). Created with the most demanding and stylish users in mind, the JARS will be the centrepiece of any knowledge centre and can double as a conference table in chambers.

As you can see in the photo, legal research in JADE with this advanced unit is amazing. Put on the 3D-glasses and organise your universe of legal research on our tactile research desk. Start small. Work big.
