Innovating Legal Research
Whether you're just starting a research project or in the thick of it,
CiteGuru Specialists can provide dedicated and insightful research support.

To start a research project, we ask that you provide as much non-sensitive information about your research needs as possible. This could include information about jurisdictions, laws, fact issues, judges, holding types,
language needed, date ranges, and more. Please review our posting guidelines for more information.
CiteGuru is free to use. However to incentivize participation from other researchers you may offer a reward for contributions. Research requests should be gauged according to complexity, amount of information needed, and level of detail.
We currently do not offer payment facilitation services, but will in the future. If you are going to offer a research reward, it is up to you to define the terms and how you will you pay. We suggest using services like paypal or bitcoin. Users may be flagged or banned for not honoring research rewards.
CiteGuru researchers provide legal information, not legal advice. To that end, we ask that you do not submit privileged or confidential case information, personally identifiable information, or any other information which could reasonably disclose details of a case, potential or otherwise, or any information intended to elicit legal advice. To the extent you provide a factual situation, please only submit hypothetical, non-descript fact patterns. Please see our posting guidelines for more information.
Privacy is our top priority - we're keenly aware of attorney-client privileges and ethical obligations.
We take seriously the types of information that may be submitted and posted for a research project and only legal information may be provided, not legal advice. We require that only
non-sensitive information be used for projects. That is information that has no personally identifiable, confidential, or otherwise
privileged details about a person, case or potential case. Learn more about
our posting guidelines by clicking here.
Any one may request to become a researcher, but only people that have been reviewed and vetted for experience, qualification, and identification may contribute to a research project. Verified researchers must have a background in the law. Review our researcher qualification requirements for more information.
We only allow vetted and qualified researchers to particiapte in research projects to ensure the quality work. We also provide moderators to oversee submissions. Project moderators represent our most talented and qualified researchers. They are in charge of reviewing researchers' work for quality and consistency, serving as a liason between you and the researchers.
Keep in mind CiteGuru is still beta testing and still developing. If you have any comments, questions, suggestions, or problems feel free to contact us by clicking here.
We also have a feedback survey if you're interested in providing any insights you have: available here.
