CRIV Advocacy Request Update: Law360 Articles in which Attorneys Have Been Quoted

CRIV received a Request For Assistance regarding Law360 articles in which a firm’s attorney had been quoted in the text. The requesting librarian wanted a complimentary courtesy copy of the article to be provided to the firm in this situation.

CRIV spoke to Cindy Spohr, Senior Librarian Relations Marketing Manager for the LexisNexis Librarian Relations Group about this (Law360 was purchased by Lexis and is available as both an independent product and on Lexis platforms). Her response is below:

Law360 traditionally offers two different options for law firms, corporations, and/or other organizations interested in obtaining copies of articles where their attorneys have been quoted:

  • For Law360-original content in which an attorney or key practitioner has been quoted, the Law360-branded version can be purchased (similarly for wide distribution and marketing, subject to pre-agreed upon terms & conditions) at current rates for original Law360 content.
  • For our third-party-authored “Expert Analysis” content, interested parties may purchase a Law360-branded version of this for wide distribution and marketing (subject to pre-agreed upon terms & conditions) at specially discounted current rates for co-authored content.

If a firm / corporation / organization is interested in the content for internal firm use only, and does not need a publicly-distributable version, interested parties can contact Law360 directly at 646-783-7100 and talk to their account rep to get a copy of the article sent to them on an ad hoc basis simply for review (and not distribution) up to at most 5 times per year.

Librarians looking to get a free copy of a Law360 article in these situations should review the final paragraph of Ms. Spohr’s statement.

Thank you to Cindy Spohr for clarifying the policy.
