I’ve been out of the loop for a little while and just happened on EVA the free AI-based legal research tool that ROSS Intelligence made available earlier this year. ROSS CEO Andrew Arruda characterizes this “AI system” as ROSS’ new coworker.
Robert Ambrogi blogged about EVA’s unveilling in late January calling it a “brief analyzer.” He expanded on this description:
“…it is also a tool for checking the subsequent history of cited cases and determining if they are still good law, … [and it] also can be used to find other cases that are similar to a given case or to find cases that have similar language or that contain the same quotes.”
Ambrogi also gives a nice overview of how the platform works. Arruda provided a demonstration which left Ambrogi concluding that he was “impressed” and could not “imagine why a lawyer wouldn’t use EVA to analyze a brief, since it costs nothing to use and could potentially uncover weak citations or additional authorities.”
If you’re curious to learn more about some of these features there are a series of demonstration videos available on that famous video platform. Or maybe you’d like to “supercharge your legal research” by signing up and trying it yourself.
I’d be curious to know if anyone has tried this and whether they find it useful.
