Bar News - November 23, 2007


Casemaker Economical and Convenient

 

Your free, online law library, New Hampshire Casemaker, with links to 50 states, is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. To help you take advantage of Casemaker’s many helpful features and benefits, we are providing you with a Casemaker Tip of the week.


SuperCODE Feature

           

SuperCODE is the exclusive Casemaker feature that identifies changes to statutes and codes and session laws which may affect the documents you view. SuperCODE appears on the right-hand side of the screen and displays hyperlinks to session laws that reference the document currently being viewed.  You can then quickly determine if the new law will apply to the salient portion of code of interest.

           

You may access NH Casemaker through the NH Bar Association’s Web site at https://www.ribar.com/members/memberlogin.asp. If you encounter any difficulty accessing or using NH Casemaker, or if you cannot find the answers you are looking for through the provided aids or User Manual, please contact the NH Bar Association at 603-224-6942.

 

Westlaw Charges to View Documents in Its Browse Feature

           

The ability to browse through content is one of Casemaker’s more popular features. Users have the ability to view a table of contents for all to statutes, codes, rules, and other materials. By being able to view the titles users can determine which item would be of most interest to them. This feature allows attorneys the freedom to search for a desired document without knowing the citation number or even the official document name. It is just like using a printed book. And it is completely free to Casemaker members.

           

Why is this remarkable? Did you know that other publishers actually charge their customers for this service? The Cincinnati Bar Association Report recently did a comparison of a few of the legal research providers. One of their findings revealed that as of January 2007, Westlaw began charging $4.00 per document in their “Documents in Sequence” feature (A.K.A. browse). If you are a current Westlaw user and you desire to browse in statutes, regulatory codes, rules, or other materials, you need to be using Casemaker. Our free service will save you and your clients a bundle.

 

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
