STRUCTURE OF AN ALEXSEI MEMO

An Alexsei memo is composed of 5 parts:

1. Issue

  • the question submitted by a lawyer

2. Facts

  • additional information provided by the lawyer that gives context to the question

3. Conclusion

  • a summary of the key points of law set out in the memo

4. Law

  • the body of the memo
  • provides a full answer to the lawyer’s question by setting out summaries of relevant caselaw and legislation and quotations from the cited cases
    and legislative documents

5. Authorities

  • a hyperlinked list of the cases and legislation cited in the memo
Your legal question is answered by the Conclusion and Law sections of the memo.

Conclusion

The conclusion provides a short overview of the answer to the question. Each paragraph of the conclusion consists of either:

  • a statement of a relevant legal principle, or
  • a case summary that demonstrates an application of the principle in an analogous or distinguishable situation

Law

The Law section of an Alexsei memo contains the complete answer to your question.

Each paragraph in the Law section refers to a single source of law (either a case or a legislative document). Each paragraph begins by identifying the case or piece of legislation and summarizing the part of the document that is relevant to the question asked.

After providing a summary, the important paragraphs or sections are quoted directly.

Yes. Every memo that we produce is shared only with the users of the firm that requested the memo. We never share one firm’s memo with any other firm.

The combination of advanced software and economies of scale permit Alexsei to provide significant value for a highly reduced price. Traditional legal research practices have been very inefficient; fortunately, Alexsei is here to change that.

Alexsei works by automating legal research tasks with sophisticated machine learning software. Nuances involved in answering a legal research question that cannot be fully automated with the current technology are completed by expert researcher lawyers with experience in the area of law asked about. By combining artificial intelligence with human legal experience, Alexsei can continue to provide highly precise answers to complex legal questions at a significantly reduced cost.

We are constantly striving to reduce the turnaround time for an answer. Currently, though, you can expect an answer roughly 24 hours after submitting your question.

Answers are provided in memo format that includes: (1) a conclusion that provides a short summary of the answer, (2) a detailed, full answer with quotes from relevant caselaw and legislation, and, (3) a hyperlinked list of authorities.

Currently, Alexsei operates in all Canadian common law jurisdictions and in California and New York.

Alexsei has built proprietary artificial intelligence technology that utilizes deep learning to optimize the process of conducting legal research.

We are confident that you’ll love Alexsei. If you receive a memo that doesn’t satisfactorily answer your question, or that you aren’t satisfied with, we will redo the memo (for free) or offer you a refund. To help ensure that you get the most out of Alexsei, please see our Guide to Using Alexsei.

We have a variety of pricing models to best suit your practice. Contact sales for more information.

Legal research is time-intensive. Some of this time can be billed to clients, however, it is often written off as non-billable or billed at heavily discounted rates. Alexsei saves you time by doing the research for you. If you choose, you can pass along the cost of using Alexsei to your clients. With Alexsei, you’ll spend less time doing research and more time doing billable work like providing opinions, refining arguments, drafting, negotiating, and litigating.
