Thomson Reuters Westlaw & Practical Law Basics for New Attorneys and Summer Associates

This session is designed for new attorneyes and law firm summer associates.  While students have access to Westlaw and Practical Law in law school, they may need guidance on understanding the firm’s content in plan and policy on cost-effective usage to clients.   Basic legal research concepts including Primary Law, Secondary Sources and Litigation Documents such as Briefs and Trial Court Orders will be reviewed.   A deep dive of West Key Numbers and Digest and editorial tools such as Statutes Annotated and Indices will be taught.   The session will focus on general cost effective research tips and users will be taught how to verify content available in their research plan.  While the session is geared toward new attorneys and summer associates, this program has been submitted for 1.0 CLE and attorneys who are looking for a Westlaw refresher are also encouraged to attend.  Presenter Steven Silvertein, J.D. is a Client Representative for Thomson Reuters with over 30 years of experience in legal publishing.  Steven has trained hundreds of attorneys on Westlaw.
