Compare Jurisdictions

Compare the law across multiple jurisdictions, with citations.

Comparing the law between different jurisdictions is one of the most time-consuming tasks for lawyers. Where 'Answer a Question' is for one single jurisdiction, 'Compare Jurisdictions' allows you to ask the same question across multiple. Vincent AI makes it easy by drawing from vLex’s vast repository of trusted and authoritative legal information.

Compare jurisdictions

To get started, click the blue 'Vincent AI' button on the top bar, then select 'Compare Jurisdictions'.

On the left, you can see your history. If you select any of these queries, it will show you the results it showed you before. As this does not re-run the search, it does not count as a new query. You can collapse your history by clicking the icon above it.

Select the jurisdictions (including a region or state) you are interested in comparing, and type your question into the box. When you first enter the page, the top jurisdiction will match your default search jurisdiction, if it's available from the list.

You can compare up to 15 jurisdictions (or sub-jurisdictions, including states) at a time.

You can currently select from Australia, Canada, Chile, the European Union, Ireland, Mexico, Singapore, Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States, Colombia* and New Zealand*. We will be adding more jurisdictions soon.

When you are ready, press 'Submit Question'. The answer may take a minute or two to generate, as Vincent is searching all of our legal content for the best argument in response to your statement. The more jurisdictions you compare, the longer it will take. We will email you once this has been fully generated, so if you wish to continue your research while you wait, you don't need to worry about losing your answer.

You can also edit your question if you feel you haven't worded it correctly. However, do bear in mind that this will submit a new query.


Your answer will automatically be displayed in a table below your question, but you can choose to view this in 'tab' format to flick between jurisdictions. If you have chosen to view your answer in tab format, it will show you the expanded answer and Legal Authorities for each jurisdiction and allow you to move between the tabs.

The table will be split by jurisdiction with the summary of your answer, a link to the expanded answer, and the list of Legal Authorities cited. If you select 'Full answer' or 'Legal Authorities,' it will show you the same layout as the Ask a Question feature.
