In this video, I want to show one of the cool features that has been built into EVA, our Find Similar Case Law language feature. As you’ll see here, I’ve uploaded a brief into EVA. At the top, you’ll see the case treatments, and then below you’ll see the full brief that has been uploaded. Now, let’s say you want to find other cases that contain similar language to a statement, phrase, or argument that you’ve made in your brief. You might want to do that to see if there are any cases that you might’ve missed in your initial research process or maybe you want to see if there are any cases out there that might’ve come out since you prepared the brief that could be relevant to anything that you have stated in your brief. So, if you scroll through you might say “Hmmm, I wonder if there’s any case law out there that I might’ve missed that contains language similar to the following phrase?” So, what you do is you highlight it like so. And you click the “Find Similar Language” button, like so. So what EVA will do, is it will search the full database of case law to see whether there are any cases out there that contains similar language. It will produce five results, as you’ll see here. Now, let’s say you want to take a deeper dive into one of these cases, all you do is just click on it, and it’ll jump right to the part of the case that contains that similar language. Another reason why you might want to search for similar languages, is let’s say there’s a rule or statement from a leading case and you want to see whether there are other cases out there that might’ve quoted that same rule or principle, just to see whether there are ways to bolster, the arguments you’re making in your brief, for example. So let’s say you want to see whether this rule established by the Supreme Court of the United States in Wong Sun v the United States has been applied in other cases. Again, all you do is you highlight it, click “Find Similar Language”, and viola! And, that’s it! That’s our “Find Similar Case Language” feature.
