Tools for Accessing Caselaw

The capstone of the Caselaw Access Project is a robust set of tools which facilitate access to the cases and their associated metadata. We currently offer two ways to access the data: our API, and bulk downloads.

The API

Our open-source API is the best option for anybody interested in programmatically accessing our metadata, full-text search, or individual cases.

Bulk Downloads

If you need a large collection of cases, you will probably be best served by our bulk data downloads. Bulk downloads for Illinois and Arkansas are available without a login, and unlimited bulk files are available to research scholars.
