Thomson Reuters New Law School Landing Page

Just before some of us began classes in August, Thomson Reuters changed their landing page. As opposed to the old lawschool.westlaw.com, you will be redirected to lawschool.tr.com. There were a few teething troubles with this at the beginning, but it seems to be working as of now (although I sometimes still see the old page with some of my saved links). This is part of a branding attempt to make students more aware of the fact that Thomson Reuters owns Westlaw. The new page is more streamlined, with less text. Those who want to access Westlaw need to click on the orange “log in now” button towards the middle of the screen.
