10/10 “Very comprehensive and easy to navigate”
Instantly identify the most cited passages of a judgment to get to the crux of a case, and even see where and how those sections have been most subsequently cited. vLex cross-references hundreds of thousands of documents continuously to identify cited passages, and provide direct links between documents.
Often long lists are not the best method to communicate multiple, complex relationships between cases. The vLex Precedent Map instantly displays the relationships between case law, allowing you to filter by area of law to make sure that you are looking at the most relevant information for your research. Using the Precedent Map even allows you to see common links to documents not directly cited, to ensure you do not miss any key cases relevant to your research. In some regions, such as the UK, vLex also displays treatment information to further improve your understanding of the relationships between two, or more, cases.
If you are conducting international or comparative law research, or simply looking for persuasive arguments that might well be from overseas, vLex can automatically translate documents into multiple languages to allow you access to more of the law. You can even view automatically translated documents side-by-side with the original. Translations are made by Google Translate software, we advise seeking an official translation once you have found a relevant document.
