ROSS Intelligence has been busy lately! ROSS Intelligence, a legal research platform that uses AI in its search results, made two big announcements over the past week.

First, ROSS is providing free accounts to its legal research system to law students and faculty. Sign up for an account, and try out the platform for free before you become an attorney. While you’re at it, you should also take a look at Fastcase (available for free to Utah bar members and members of many other state bars) and Casetext (which is affordable and has some exciting features).

Second, ROSS announced a partnership with legal research platform Fastcase. Fastcase will share its much larger library of state statutes and case law with ROSS, giving ROSS a comprehensive collection of those materials and making it much more useful to researchers. ROSS and Fastcase also plan to collaborate on future, yet-to-be-named legal research and technology projects. It will be interesting to see what they come up with.

Partnering with other legal technology companies is a trend for ROSS. In October, ROSS announced a partnership with legal software company Clio. Clio will integrate ROSS’s Document Analyzer tool into its case management platform, enabling attorneys to analyze the citations in their documents directly within Clio without logging onto a separate platform.

Legal technology integration and acquisition is the future—making legal technology tools that can seamlessly integrate with one another, increasing inefficiency and effectiveness. Keep an eye out for more partnerships to come.
