Research Tip - Drafting Assistant

Drafting Assistant - Automate your Table of Authorities and turn case law and secondary source references into live links.


Drafting Assistant is a Microsoft Word plug-in. When preparing documents – such as facta, brief of authorities, and legal memoranda – Drafting Assistant is a perfect companion to Word. With a click, Drafting Assistant will analyze your documents for any reference to case law or secondary source, insert a live link for each citation, and, for case law, it will add the current KeyCite flag so that users can tell at a glance if the case continues to be good law.
