Clerk is software designed to analyse briefs, highlight strengths and weaknesses, and grade their chances of success. According to Clerk, a plaintiff should avoid citing a case in which the defendant won. And, obviously, an advocate should ensure quotations are accurate and get the judge’s name right.
For its launch, its owners ran Clerk on nearly 500 briefs filed by 20 firms in California state courts and published the results. They found the judge’s name mis-spelled in briefs from 8 of the firms.
