What we are all about
With just ONE log-in, NextLaw™ App gives users like judges, advocates, attorneys, legal researchers, law students, and other legal professionals access to judgments from courts in South Africa, Statutes of Parliament, Legal Journals, etc. The App guarantees effective, efficient, and timely conduct of legal research, irrespective of location, time and access to the Internet. This App delivers an efficient and accurate search results, because it deploys the concept of natural key words technology.
The user searches for a subject matter by entering it as key word after landing on the “search” interface of the App, then specifies where s/he wants to search, and the results are delivered within seconds, with the Citation as the heading for each of the search results. Also, by mere typing the key words (single or multiple words), or Case Title, or Case Number, or even the Judges’ name, the search engines filters the search and narrows it down to the specific search criteria. Thus, from one interface, the user can search through cases, statutes, gazettes, articles/journals, regulations and rules of courts all at once!!!
