Get even more precise results by using the “Search Within” feature

Sharp-eyed Fastcase users may have noticed a feature we recently released called “Search Within.” This feature allows you to – you guessed it – search within your caselaw results in order to narrow them down.

We ran a search for the phrase “easement by necessity” in all jurisdictions and came up with a little over 1,200 results. We decided to narrow those results down to ones that only included the word covenant by clicking the orange “Search Within” button at the top of the list of results.

This takes us back to the Advanced Caselaw Search page, where you’ll see our previous search term is listed above the search box.  We’ll type the word covenant into the search box in order to look for cases that have both keywords.

You’ll see this has significantly narrowed our results, going from 1,200+ to just under 100!
