Parallel Search applies cutting-edge A.I. technology, trained on the law, to help you spend less time searching and find cases traditional search technology would miss.

Is Parallel Search the same as a natural language or keyword search?

No. Parallel Search uses more advanced technology than natural language or keyword searching. Traditional search technology generates results based on the words you use in your search. That technology limits your results to cases that use the same language as you do. As a result, you will miss cases that address your topic but use different language. Parallel Search, by contrast, understands synonyms and relationships between words and concepts, allowing you to find cases on your topic, even if the cases do not use any of the words that you used to describe your topic.
