Ravel Law is a new legal search, analytics, and visualization platform. Ravel enables lawyers to find, contextualize, and interpret information that turns legal data into legal insights. Ravel’s array of powerful tools – which include data-driven, interactive visualizations and analytics – transforms how lawyers understand the law and prepare for litigation. In today’s global and increasingly digital world, Ravel empowers attorneys to benefit from this huge influx of information and find value in it.
US Supreme Court and Federal Circuit Decisions are free for login and email access (Linkedin and Google). District Court and State Jurisdictions are “premium”; but you must contact them for a price quote.
I’m not certain of the efficacy of the visualization. Its usefulness is not immediately, intuitively obvious.
Bob Ambrogi’s short piece does a better job of explaining how Ravel works than the Ravelers. I suppose you could call it a “Ravelation”.
