Legal News One of the most surprising developments of 2020 was the new focus on Legal News. ALM launched an innovative new alerting services called Law.com Radar which originally launched as (Legal Radar). Here are links to the posts I wrote about Law.com radar in February and November 2020. Westlaw although owned by the Thomson Reuters news organization had ignored the legal news market they launched Westlaw Today in 2020. (The predecessor company West Publishing had made short lived attempt with a product called Westlaw News sometime in the 1980s.) Fastcase which bought Law Street Media began publishing legal news which leveraged data harvested from their Docket Alarm analytics product. ( A new Lexis News offering Law360 Pulse which launched in January 2021 was not included in this survey but will be included in the 2021 survey.)

Legal Marketplaces It has become nearly impossible to test and track all the new legal technology tools that flood the market each year. In addition, existing tools are transformed with powerful new functionality. Enter the legal marketplace – a new category of legal resource which makes it easier to track and test new products. Four products emerged in 2020: Thomson Reuters Legal Home, Legaltechnologyhub.com, Thomson Reuters Marketplace and Reynen Court.
Best Legal Marketplace: Thomson Reuters Legal Home took the top spot.
