Timing is an important part of legal analysis, but date and time information and other event details are often buried in the thick narratives of lengthy transcripts or long, complicated reports. CoCounsel Core can review files to identify events and provide a dynamic list with citations to the exact page of supporting documents.
A. How the AI Works
When CoCounsel is creating a timeline, it reads every word of a file to identify events. Generally, creating a timeline follows these steps.
1. Request a timeline
2. Select the source
3. CoCounsel reads every word of a file
4. CoCounsel provides a dynamic list with date and time information, and a short event description
5. Navigate and verify the results
6. Use the results
Ask CoCounsel Core for initial assistance.
2. Refine results
After reviewing CoCounsel Core’s response, continue chatting with CoCounsel to refine the results.
1. Input limits
.pdf, .doc, .docx, .txt, .zip
500 MB .pdf
20 MB .doc, .docx, .txt
Generally, there can be a tradeoff between the size of files and the amount of files. For example, CoCounsel may be able to work with many smaller files in the same time as a few larger files. While there is no limit to the number of files CoCounsel can use to create a timeline, expect to wait longer for requests with larger files or more files. CoCounsel will provide an estimated time to complete the work.
Requests and refinements
CoCounsel cannot focus on specific information (e.g., events that happened at or after a date and/or time or the activities of a specific person). In this way, CoCounsel's Timeline skill functions more like the Summarize skill, which performs a preset course of action, and not like the Review Documents or Extract Contract Data skills, which can be used to identify specific information or answer specific questions.
Generally, if a human can read handwritten text, then CoCounsel should be able to read it, too. This means CoCounsel’s ability to read handwritten text can vary, depending on legibility.
2. Output limits
The number of events CoCounsel can identify is not limited.
