LearnLeo is a new online research tool designed to make legal research and document drafting more efficient for legal writers. LearnLeo allows you to gather excerpts from any online resource (including fee databases like Westlaw and Lexis) and save, highlight, or annotate this content within customized research subjects with a single click.
Students can build and edit a brief or memo outline as they research -- if you want to change your outline, you can drag and drop your research subjects to restructure your outline.
LearnLeo also saves links to all of your sources to help ensure that you cite to sources accurately and completely (it doesn't supply perfect Bluebook citations for you, however). You can find out more about how LearnLeo works at its website.
The law library isn't able to pursue an institution-wide subscription to LearnLeo at this time. However, we wanted to inform law students that you can create a LearnLeo Research account, and your first project will be free. At the end of February, LearnLeo will begin to charge law student users who wish to continue to use the product a monthly subscriber fee of $4.99. However, if you start a project in February, you’ll be able to continue to use that project after February 28 without paying the monthly fee.
