Sometimes as an attorney, you just need to share a document. Whether it’s a statute that you want a client who is an employer to be aware of, a regulation that a co-counsel needs to review, or a case that a judge wants to see in its entirety, sometimes you just need a copy of the entire document. However, sometimes you don’t need a paper copy, you just need a way for the other person to see what you are seeing. That’s where public link comes in. Using your access to Fastcase through the South Carolina Bar, you can generate a public link to a particular statute or case. This link is static, so it can be accessed anytime, but does not require that the other be logged into Fastcase in order to view the document. Simply locate the document you want to share in Fastcase. Then click on the “Public Link” link at the top of the page.
