Free Fastcase for Texas Bar Members


Last week, the State Bar of Texas announced that it will be providing its members with free access to Fastcase.  This access is being provided in addition to the Casemaker legal research service that the Texas Bar already provides for members.  
  
According to the press release, solo and small firm (less than 11 attorneys) practitioners will have access to Fastcase’s Premium Plan, which includes federal and state cases, statutes, regulations, court rules, and more.  Attorneys from firms of 11 or more will have access to Fastcase’s Texas Plan, which includes Texas cases, U.S. Supreme Court cases, and Fifth Circuit cases as well as the Texas statutes, the U.S. code, and more.  

To access Fastcase, visit the Texas Bar website, click the Fastcase icon in the middle of the page, and then login with your bar number and password.  You can also access Fastcase from the TexasBarCLE website.  If you aren’t a member of the Texas Bar, don’t forget you can still access Fastcase for free on your mobile device with its free app!  The app is available for iOS and Android devices.
