Leveraging its connections with Reuters news, Westlaw recently revealed a new news product called Westlaw Today. For any academic libraries, you can access Westlaw Today on the product switcher when you sign-in to your Westlaw Edge account or at today.westlaw.com. The homepage provides the latest legal news, attorney analysis, and most viewed articles. There is also a link to submit an article or sign-up for notifications. The service also has 30 practice areas that gather news articles on those particular legal topics.
According to their own literature, news comes from a variety of sources including CQ Roll Call, the Hill, and more. Editorial teams at the new publication include attorneys as well as legal editors who monitor the different practice areas. There is also something called the Daily Docket, which is a morning newsletter that provides the headlines for the day.
