On October 19, 2021, Lex Machina hosted a webcast on Case Tags and Outcome Analytics: Essential Functions for Litigation Analytics. The webcast featured guest speakers Rachel Bailey (Data Relations Manager at Lex Machina) and Marissa Skudlarek (Software Engineer at Lex Machina). They discussed what’s involved in creating tagging systems and Outcome Analytics, and how that benefits your practice.
“Outcome analytics tell you what happened in cases like [yours]. We use tags and filters,” said Rachel Bailey. “What Marissa and the engineering team do is so important, because that gets us to the relevant cases. And then we cross search that with a judge or party or counsel in order to get a record of cases like yours and explore cases of interest quickly, find out information quickly.”
