Thomson Reuters Integrates Solutions to Bridge Gap Between Practical Guidance and Legal Research



   Bookmark and Share

Thomson Reuters has enhanced its know-how service, Practical Law, by integrating a selection of content from its legal research solution, Westlaw UK. The company says that the closer integration bridges the gap between practical guidance and legal research and creates a more seamless experience between the two products.

Specifically, the integration provides access to cases, legislation and journals from Westlaw UK within the legal knowledge environment offered by Practical Law, enabling legal professionals to delve deeper into the underlying legal authority and find answers to their most challenging legal issues.

The need for precision and confidence has never been more important and the addition of legal research to Practical Law meets this demand by helping to ensure that customers have the information and insight they require to take the right actions, said Andrew Buckley, head of product management for research and commentary at the Legal UK&I business of Thomson Reuters.

Following the launch of this nhancement, customers can browse and access a selection of full-text documents from more than 500,000 cases, as well as the latest changes in legislation and more than 100 journals from Westlaw UK, all within the same Practical Law environment and without the need to navigate between different product interfaces.

The closer integration requires a subscription to both Practical Law and Westlaw UK and provides three ways in which to access Westlaw UK content within the familiar and intuitive environment provided by Practical Law: ‘editors picks’ available on topic pages, customizable folders, and via existing links embedded within Practical Law documents.

The company says this closer integration is the latest in a series of product developments Thomson Reuters has introduced to Practical Law. Over the last 12 months, the company has introduced process-based matter maps within Practical Law that guide lawyers through key phases of work and tasks in more than 70 separate legal matters, added more than 300 new cross-order resources, and introduced improved document drafting tools through further integration with Contract Express.
