Overall Satisfaction with Thomson Reuters Westlaw

I first started using WestLaw while working as a contractor to a federal agency working in privacy and information security. When conducting legal research, one has to weed through sources to find unbiased information that provides the level of detail needed to finish the task. WestLaw provided me with the information I needed to be able to provide quality information to address the constantly changing needs of the agency.

Pros

  • I was able to immediately access information that directly related to the issues.
  • WestLaw provided access to information that would have taken tens of hours to locate in old and often out of print sources.

Cons

  • I am pleased with the overall experience with the tool. One does not have to scroll through long pages or click through page after page to get to the resources you need.
  • Many tools - one interface for a reasonable price.
  • You're able to use WestLaw as a replacement for other pricey tools - freeing up money for more important things.
Hands down, WestLaw is the one tool to use. As I said before, you can use WestLaw as your go-to tool, giving you the ability to close subscriptions to other costly tools. WestLaw covers all the bases, allowing you to conduct your legal research in one place.
I would not hesitate to recommend WestLaw to a colleague - in fact, I have recommended the tool on numerous occasions. Access to the available tools make the cost more than economical, and it is easy to justify purchasing the tool to corporate department heads. Further, the tool allowed me to consolidate several costly subscriptions into only WestLaw, saving me and my company hundreds of dollars.
