In my post last week on the 20 legal tech trends that defined 2020, one I included involved the launch last year of three new services for legal news, two of which combined traditional journalism with data and analytics, and a third, from Thomson Reuters, that seemed to directly target the Law360 news service from its competitor LexisNexis.

20 For 2020: The Legal Tech Trends that Defined the Year

Whoa, what the f*&% just happened? This was a year few of us will ever forget. It brought untold hardships for many and unfamiliar challenges for all of us.

My Most-Read Posts of 2020

In a year dominated and defined by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is surprising that most of my top-read stories this year had nothing to do with the pandemic. Instead, they were about ransomware attacks, regulatory reform, industry news, and new legal research tools. Every year since 2010, I have compiled a year-end list of my most-popular posts. The results have always been interesting. Three years ago, by a wide margin, my top-viewed post was about the debut of the LegalBoard, a keyboard designed ...

ROSS Makes Next Move In Court, Pushing Forward In Fight Against Thomson Reuters Lawsuit

New Dashboard Makes It Easy To Find Practical Content on Wolters Kluwer’s Cheetah Legal Research Platform
