Our Story

Law is America's operating system. We're giving it an update.

Ravel is analytical research—a new category of intelligent tool that combines legal research and analytics. Powered by expert legal knowledge, machine learning, and comprehensive caselaw from the Harvard Law Library, Ravel is built by digital natives for 21st Century practice.

Ravel enables lawyers to find what's important, understand why it's important, and put that information to use in the most persuasive way possible. In short, we turn legal information into legal insights.

Ravel's intuitive array of data-driven tools are built from the ground up for the hardest questions, transforming how lawyers understand the law and prepare for litigation.

Ravel was formed in 2012, spinning out of Stanford University's Law School, Computer Science Department, and d.school, with the support of CodeX (Stanford's Center for Legal Informatics).

We're based in San Francisco, California.
