In February 2006, the VSB gave its notice of intent to award a contract to Fastcase, a legal research vendor now based in Washington, D.C. Fastcase provides online legal research services to more than two dozen bar associations and has been the provider of legal research services in Virginia since this original contract award. On January 26, 2016, the VSB published a notice of intent to award Fastcase a new three-year contract with optional one-year renewals. All lawyers admitted to practice in Virginia have access to the Fastcase platform as part of their annual bar dues.

Fastcase is a web-based legal research platform to search primary legal authorities, including cases, statutes, and regulations. This content includes a nationwide collection of state and federal primary legal materials that can be searched from a single interface.
