Thomson Reuters has introduced Practical Law Dynamic Tool Set, its next-generation, technology-driven features in Practical Law that use AI and dynamic graphical navigation to help legal professionals work better and more quickly, and with greater confidence.
“By putting AI, analytical tools and proprietary visual navigation technologies in service to our attorney-authored content, we’ve created entirely new capabilities to help our customers thrive during this time of rapid change,” said Paul Fischer, president of the Legal Professionals segment of Thomson Reuters. “Practical Law Dynamic Tool Set has become our latest cairn, marking our path to becoming a true content-driven technology company.”
Legal professionals have long turned to Practical Law for expert, attorney-authored resources to quickly find answers they can trust. With Dynamic Tool Set, users can navigate Practical Law resources to discover and visualize content in new ways; find the most relevant answers and know-how – like practice notes, checklists and articles – more quickly; compare content across multiple jurisdictions; analyze market trends at a glance; and plan and manage matters with quick customizable views of the work to be done.
“We’ve taken what we’ve learned from nearly three decades of AI enablement and specifically tuning our technology to attorney-authored content in Westlaw Edge and applied it to a new proprietary editorial content set from Practical Law,” said Isabelle Moulinier, vice president and AI lead at Thomson Reuters Labs. “With more attorneys working remotely, the trusted advisor down the hall isn’t always there anymore, and legal professionals are relying on technology to provide that know-how and find the expert within themselves, supported by AI and data-driven insights.”
Practical Law Dynamic Tool Set includes five distinct new features, each of which allows users to extract more value from Practical Law content.
Fischer added, “More than ever, clients are looking to firms to deliver legal services differentiated by value and efficiency, and a big takeaway from the past year is that the right technology and access to expert legal know-how – whether in the office or working remotely – is critical to sustaining a legal business.”
