Casemaker Weekly – December 5th, 2018

by Alexa Drago on December 5, 2018

This week we talk about citation formats, history and ways to watch and learn. Let’s get started!

Citation Format and Autocorrect

Casemaker uses the Bluebook citation format and will auto-correct your citations for you. For example, if you enter 567 f3d 1120 in the search bar, Casemaker will correct your entry to 567 F.3d 1120. Both regional reporter and state reporter citations will work! If you need to disable this for any reason, simply check the Turn off Autocorrect box before performing your search.

Videos and Webinars 

You have access to resources to help you use Casemaker right on the website. The Videos link provides you with access to the training materials and demonstrations anytime you need them. The webinar link allows you to register for live training sessions that you can attend from your home or office. The help link is available as well, with links to our user guide, quick tips, and our customer support information if you need additional help.

Using History

The History Link in the upper right will provide you with a complete history of all the searches you’ve created, and documents you’ve viewed since logging into the Casemaker system. Each item in the History comes complete with a date and time stamp, as well as a client label if you performed it while logged in to a client. So if you spent Friday evening searching for a particular statute and forgot to save it to a folder, you don’t need to worry! Just click your history to find it again without the hassle. The date and time stamps will help you be able to navigate which of these descriptions is the right one.

 

That is all for this week! We will back with more tips and tricks next week. Thanks again for making Casemaker a Valued Member Benefit.
