2021 Highlights: Practical Law Dynamic Tool Set
As 2021 winds down, Legal Current is looking back at the milestones and key accomplishments from the Legal Professionals business of Thomson Reuters. Today we highlight the launch of Practical Law Dynamic Tool Set, which Thomson Reuters introduced in July.
The tool set includes features in Practical Law that use AI and dynamic graphical navigation to help legal professionals work better and with greater confidence. It allows users to access five distinct features: Dynamic Search, Knowledge Map, Quick Compare, Interactive Matter Maps and What’s Market Analytics.
These features help users to 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.
Top legal industry influencers shared positive takes on the rollout, including Above the Law Editor Joe Patrice, who explained, “My takeaway was that Practical Law has its eyes very much on the importance of delivering its content to users in the best way possible. More customization, more AI assistance, more visualization. The content has always been there, now it’s about constantly innovating when it comes to delivery.”
Additional recognition came in November when Practical Law Dynamic Tool Set was honored as a 2021 LegalTech Breakthrough Award winner for “Legal Research Innovation of the Year.” The award recognizes standout legal technology companies, products and services around the globe.
