Q. What does it mean to Shepardize a document?

How do I Shepardize a case?

Answer

Nexis Uni allows researchers to Shepardize cases with appellate histories wherein the case has been overruled, reaffirmed, criticized, cited, etc. This process of organizing legal citations began with Frank Shepard in 1873 and today it is an industry standard. It is a great way to determine if a case’s judgement is still being upheld (good law) or not. Nexis Uni, our legal database, has a Shepardize function available.
