Tip: Selecting a Specific Jurisdiction

With Fastcase, it is easy to choose a specific jurisdiction for your case law searches.

1. Start by navigating to Advanced Caselaw Search.

2. Next, scroll down to the “Select Jurisdictions” heading and click the circle next to “Individual Jurisdictions.”

3. This should reveal a number of categories of jurisdictions. Expand any category by clicking the plus sign next to the category name.

4. Select the specific jurisdictions you wish to search within by marking the box next to the name of the jurisdiction. You can select as many or as few as you like, and you can search across different categories.

Bonus: As you search, the last 5 jurisdictions (or groups of jurisdictions) that you selected will begin to appear under “Recently Searched Jurisdictions.”
