CALL Annual Conference Justis Vendor Demo
rokThe 2nd vendor demo at this afternoon's session at the annual conference of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries in Calgary was by Justis, the UK-based company that offers the JustCite citator.
Recent enhancements to JustCite make case citation work more efficient. When noting up a case, results are broken down into subsequent cases, key cases considered by the initial case, recent journal articles, and legislation considered.
The one big new JustCite feature is the "precedent map", a visual map that makes apparent the connections between cases and the depth of those connections. Cases in the map are represented by circles, the larger the circles, the more links to other cases are shared (and the greater the likelihood that the initial case and these other cases are on the same point of law).
