Practical Law is used by our legal department to access precedents, decisions and other legal resources for both our internal and external needs. Having access to a resource like Practical Law gives our legal team the confidence that we are using updated forms, checklists to ensure we are compliant and providing value to our organizations.
  • Real decisions from the courts
  • Practical guidance from top practitioners
  • Updated forms for different practice areas
  • Overall solid coverage for my legal needs
  • Navigation can get tricky with some scenarios
  • Some of the features can be offered for free as opposed to paid
  • Sometimes there are precedents and forms that are not updated
PracticalLaw offers excellent Practice Notes, Checklists, Precedents, and Toolkits for a variety of practice areas - which is very helpful to in-house counsel and law clerks that are working on files across different practice areas.

Less appropriate when there are already many resources available to me to help in drafting documents - then there is not much use to look up PLC.
  • Checklists
  • Toolkits
  • Practice Notes
  • Expert Commentary
  • Able to efficiently work on more files
  • Get up to speed on new topics
  • Better help cross-functional departments with more diverse issues
Lexis Practice Advisor is an excellent alternative - but Practical Law has more comprehensive coverage of topics and practice areas - as well as more frequent updates to tools and checklists. Also, Practice Law integrates well with WestLaw which is great for having all the legal research and files centralized.

Practical law is used as an educational tool. It contains a lot of resources to help guide users through the various areas of law: entertainment, labor and employment, real estate, etc. It contains articles, guides, templates, examples...and serves as a great how to guide if you happen to be starting out.

Most of the professors and students use it, and a lot of our transactional instruction relies on practical law guides and templates.
  • Resource guides
  • Practical tips from practitioners
  • Templates
  • Recent articles and news
  • Some resources are more detailed and on point than others
  • Competitors offer platforms that are more user-friendly
  • Sometimes navigating back to an old resource takes a bit more time than other platforms
It is great for most, general high-level tasks. If you need something more specific in a particular area, however, there may be better guides elsewhere. Though the materials are a great starting point, it still requires additional review and modification to suit your needs. Not all things are on point, but it's a great starting point.
  • Fantastic resources
  • Multiple examples
  • Document saving platform
  • Lexix Nexis and Bloomberg
They are pretty similar. I rely on practical law for certain practice areas more, and rely on the other platforms for other areas as they are more comprehensive and up to date. Lexis also is connected with Law360, and has a different set of resources, and has a strong shepherdizing tool that integrates well with what I need to do sometimes.
