The Paper Chase 2.0

Place the text of a court opinion in the textarea, then choose one of the options below. If you want to create a case brief, you can select either the first or second option. The second option, ELI5 (Explain it like I'm 5), will attempt to make the brief more accessible. If you have questions about the case, you can use any of the first three options. The third, "Play the gunner," will jump right to a Q&A. To test your own understanding, choose "Play the prof (Socrates lives!)" This will launch a simulated law prof who will engage you in a Socratic dialogue.

To keep costs down, this tool is using OpenAI's gpt-3.5-turbo-16k. This limits the size of your case texts to something like half a dozen pages. FWIW, here's a case that fits in the context window: Hawkins v. McGee. If you want a larger input size or "better" briefs, consider making your own version of this tool and choosing a different model. Here's a How To you can follow.

If you're in the middle of a chat below, and you want to restart, just refresh this page. Your text to the left will be saved.

Note: I prepaid for some LLM usage. Once that runs out, visitors will have to point to their own LLMs when prompted. Here's what you need to use OpenAI. DISCLAIMER
