Since launching Judge Analytics last year, we’ve been inspired to see lawyers use the platform to craft litigation strategy and conduct novel research. Partners have used it to forecast the outcome of motions, and associates have used it to identify the most persuasive ways to make an argument. As a senior partner at an Am Law 10 firm told us, it “provides reliable, objective data about the way the judge thinks that you can’t get from any other platform.”
We’ve been hard at work expanding our analytics, and today we’re introducing a powerful update to Judge Analytics. This new version retains all the features you already enjoy, and adds more content and analysis to help you make the best possible argument. Here’s what’s new:
- More content: In addition to all federal judges, Judge Analytics now includes appellate judges from New York, California, Florida, Illinois, and Delaware. We’ll be rolling out more state coverage in the months to come, so stay tuned.
- More functionality: We’ve created the ability to dive even deeper into a judge’s history, exploring how they have ruled on motions and specific topics, with detail about what they grant and deny. This adds granularity to tools that identify the specific language and rules that a judge favors and finds persuasive. It’s also easier than ever to share research and create custom reports.
- More insights at your fingertips: We took a fresh look at Judge Analytics and created a clean, new design, along with a major speed increase.
The core features of Judge Analytics remain the same. Powered by natural language processing, data science, and machine learning, our all-in-one dashboard identifies the rules, cases, and specific language that a judge commonly cites. It also displays the cases a judge has authored and an analysis of other judges they are influenced by and other jurisdictions they consider most persuasive. With deeper insight about judges, litigators can make more informed strategic decisions about everything from how to frame arguments to whether to file a particular motion — decisions that can make or break a case.
We’re excited to build products that empower attorneys to make data-driven decisions, and we look forward to hearing your feedback on Judge Analytics’ new features.
