– Hi, there. 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 data base 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.
