..Thomson Reuters launches Case Notebook 3.5 and Drafting Assistant – Litigation with Authority Compiler
Thomson Reuters just launched Case Notebook 3.5 and Drafting Assistant – Litigation with Authority Compiler. So what does this mean for you? Well, both new versions come with new tools and functionality so practitioners can efficiently build strong cases.
Case Notebook pulls essential case information together in one place, including documents, briefs, transcripts, pleadings, key facts, legal research and more. Case Notebook 3.5 features enhanced integration with other key tools that litigators frequently use. For example, clips from scanned documents can be easily converted and sent to the users’ word processor, where they can work with the text or use features such as “Insert Flags & Links” from Drafting Assistant to assess the authorities cited in an opposing party’s brief. In addition, document lists can now be saved as .csv files for fast creation of exhibit lists. And there is now enhanced integration with SharePoint and other intranet portals.
Drafting Assistant – Litigation brings legal and case-related information and innovative drafting tools into the user’s existing word processor for fast, efficient creation of key legal documents. The new Authority Compiler feature in Drafting Assistant – Litigation allows users to automatically append the cited cases, statutes and other authority to briefs. It allows users to quickly download and compile the brief, with hyperlinks directly to the appended cases and statutes. Authorities are automatically pulled from WestlawNext and appended to the document, which users can opt to receive in PDF format. The Authority Compiler produces formatted e-documents that can be easily shared with clients, co-counsel, opposition, judges, clerks and others. In addition, a new Unified Install feature provides a faster, more customizable installation of Drafting Assistant – Litigation.
Case Notebook and Drafting Assistant – Litigation are part of a comprehensive set of integrated workflow tools, services and content from Thomson Reuters that help attorneys be more productive at each stage of a matter and more efficient in creating superior work product.
