Project Description


An analytical research tool that combines legal research and analytics

Powered by expert legal knowledge, machine learning, and comprehensive case law from the Harvard Law Library, Ravel can search all federal and state case law. The tool can quickly identify landmark cases and find results often overlooked in conventional tools, enabling lawyers to find what’s important, understand why it’s important, and put that information to use in the most persuasive way possible. In short, turning legal information into legal insights.
Ravel was formed in 2012, spinning out of Stanford University’s Law School, Computer Science Department, and D school, with the support of CodeX (Stanford’s Center for Legal Informatics).

Ravel was acquired by LexisNexis in 2017.
