Before Casedo, I had handouts, cases, articles and statutes all in separate documents and located in different files. This made writing essays particularly difficult, as having a streamlined train of thought was difficult to achieve when the relevant documents on a particular area of law were so scattered.
As a law student, using Casedo has made understanding the law a much easier task. Having a number of documents within one continuous file has allowed me to gain a holistic understanding of different topics. The ability to access all relevant information in one file has made legal research, essay writing and general comprehension much more efficient, as I am able to see all of the necessary information in front of me at once.
The split window function is a particular favourite. Being able to examine and compare two documents at once has made legal research and critical analysis much easier, and has allowed me to identify similarities and anomalies I would likely have missed if the documents had been on separate windows
I wouldn’t see Casedo as as helping with my university workload, but rather helping with comprehension. Having all the relevant documents in one place as a student would not lower the workload required, but it would allow a student to much more easily spot trends and flaws within the law.
I would absolutely recommend Casedo to a student. It has allowed me to better understand the law, something which can be incredibly difficult. It allows for a holistic view of a topic, thereby ensuring you have an informed and clear perspective of the law you are trying to analyse. This makes life much easier.
