Shepardizing Cases on Disc
SHEPARD'S/McGraw-Hill has unveiled its QUICK START program that allows lawyers to Shepardize cases on CD-ROM.
The electronic process, according to the company, does not require the lawyer to know the full name and citation in order to research a case. According to the Colorado Springs company, lawyers can type in the citation of a case, or, if they do not have the citation, they can enter all or part of the case name (either party).
The results of a search include case name, citing court, and judge information. The company's editorial letters and headnote assignments are spelled out and placed so they are easy to read, Shepards reports.
