The Fastcase legal research program has been growing in popularity in recent years and now virtually ties with Westlaw and LexisNexis as the service most used by solo, small and mid-sized firms.

Law practice management company Clio conducted a survey during 2016, asking attorneys what tool they use for legal research. The results were just made available and, out of 2,162 respondents, the top-three answers were:

1. Westlaw, 20.58 percent (445 respondents).
2. Fastcase, 20.35 percent (440 respondents).
3. LexisNexis, 20.21 percent (437 respondents).

The ISBA offers free legal research through Fastcase as a member benefit. You can read more about the Clio survey in this blog post.
