The Idaho State Bar is pleased to provide free unlimited online legal research as a member benefit for all Active members and members of the judiciary. We have previously had Casemaker’s suite of premium services as that benefit. In January 2021, Casemaker and its leading competitor, Fastcase, announced their merger.
With the merger of Casemaker with Fastcase, we are now excited to offer the added benefit of Fastcase’s extensive library at no additional cost. Together they combine to offer a comprehensive set of tools and products. Additionally, there are plans for new innovations in citator, docket analytics, and workflow tools, maximizing your bar member benefit.
Fastcase’s legal research tools offers primary legal research, as well as more than 750 books, treatises, and journals to their users. Fastcase also integrates with Docket Alarm’s briefs, pleadings, and motions database and syncs with a mobile app, on iOS and Android.
Your Casemaker login and password will be the same for access to Fastcase. If there is a necessity to change it in the future, you will be given ample notice. If you forgot your password, please contact the Idaho State Bar at 208-334-4500.
Technical questions and assistance can be directed to Fastcase at 866-773-2782, Monday – Friday, 6:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. MT, or email email@example.com.
Please note that you will need to access Fastcase through the Idaho State Bar webpage in order to have unlimited access. You can access it by clicking on the photo above or clicking here. If you would like to bookmark a page for easier access in the future, please bookmark this page.
