Who: Legal Information Institute, Cornell Law School

What: Browser extension for converting legal citations into live links

Overview: Jureeka is a free browser extension that converts plain-test legal citations into live links so you can easily read the cited case.

Highlights

  • Links show up automatically on web pages. The extension is free, and you’re not required to register or provide personal information.
  • There are no additional steps involved. When you open a web page with references to related cases, the extension automatically converts those references into live links.

 Potential Drawbacks

  • The extension has not been updated since 2011.

Opinion: Jureeka is a useful tool for finding and reading cases, though the lack of updates is disappointing. Still, for the price (free), tax practitioners will find it helpful when searching for cases cited in tax court rulings.
