Casemaker Transitions to Fastcase on August 17th for RIBA Members

As a reminder, Casemaker and Fastcase merged in January of 2021 and united their shared mission to democratize the law. Starting today, you can now access Fastcase’s legal research platform in addition to Casemaker as a preview of the combined member benefit.
