What is Vincent?

By combining human search behaviour with machine speed, Vincent enables you to go beyond traditional research methods. With its easy-to-use technology, this cross-jurisdictional assistant helps you to:

  • Quickly interact with global legal information
  • Save valuable research time
  • Extract key legal issues from cases
  • Access automatically generated headnotes on
  • millions of cases
  • Improve the quality of your work by ensuring no
  • important documents are missed due to human error.

Importantly, Vincent recognizes legal documents from over 30 countries, in both English and Spanish. As well as finding all in-text references, Vincent also finds documents that are semantically similar, on the same points of law, and also in other jurisdictions, to help lawyers build better arguments using on-point cases and persuasive authorities.

Vincent AI Case Analysis

vLex has enhanced Vincent AI’s capabilities to include a new feature called Case Analysis. Vincent, using large-scale language models, can now read cases, extract key information, and automatically produce summarized headnotes – helping legal professionals understand the important issues addressed in a judgment at a glance.
