Ground-breaking new legal online service in Australia


Thomson Reuters has launched Westlaw AU, the latest advance in online research for legal professionals in Australia. Westlaw AU offers unrivalled content from case law and journals, legislation and commentary to precedents, encyclopaedia and news, as well as legal and tax information. The technology behind the intuitive search capability within Westlaw AU helps point users to precise points of law and offers a new level of confidence that information is authoritative, current and the results are comprehensive.

Built upon state-of-the-art Westlaw technology, Westlaw AU is developed specifically for Australian customers and is modelled after Thomson Reuters online legal information services in the United Kingdom, United States, Asia, India and South America.

Jackie Rhodes, Chief Executive Officer for Thomson Reuters legal businesses in Australia and New Zealand, said Westlaw AU also features FirstPoint, the first and most comprehensive Case Digest and Case Citator service in Australia, as well as the only Digest service that allows browsing by subject. Additional features of the service allow for the creation of alerts for new content, and the ability to create and customize folders to organize, store and retrieve information efficiently.

"This launch represents a big step for Thomson Reuters by significantly enhancing our leadership position in the legal market in Australia," said Rhodes. "It represents an outstanding example of what can be achieved when we listen to our customers and apply local knowledge and expertise to a globally developed platform." For more details visit here.
