West Announces Development of

Online Current Awareness Service

West Publishing has announced plans for a 1995 release of an online current awareness service, The West Network. This service will deliver access to current awareness information, electronic mail, discussion forums, legal research capabilities and other online services directly to the attorney's desktop.

The West Network will include an online library of current business and industry news as reported in some of the nation's largest and most respected print publications, as well as the most recent case law, public laws and administrative developments. A staff of West lawyer-editors and legal journalists will provide engaging summaries and legal analysis of this material so subscribers can easily pinpoint relevant information. The information will be organized for the subscriber by topical categories. In addition, The West Network will be integrated with WESTLAW, West's computer-assisted legal research service.

Additional features of The West Network will include a personalized clipping service that searches topics of interest to the individual subscriber, a full-featured electronic mail system, public and private online discussion forums, a personal notebook and the option to attach source documents such as articles and cases to an electronic message or discussion forum document. In addition, subscribers will also be able to access other online services such as WESTLAW and the Internet to meet their daily information needs.

The West Network will initially be released in California. Future plans for the service include national availability.

The Rutter Group California Practice

Guides Added to WESTLAW

West has announced plans to add 13 of The Rutter Group California Practice Guides to WESTLAW. Two of the 13, The California Practice Guide: Civil Procedure Before Trial and The California Practice Guide: Federal Civil Procedure Before Trial databases have already been released. Each Practice Guide will be contained in its own individual database on WESTLAW, and in the new database, The Rutter Group - California Practice Guides: Multibase (TRG-CA).

Eleven additional titles, which focus on various practice areas, will be added to WESTLAW later this year, including Family Law, Enforcing Judgments and Debts, Landlord-Tenant, Corporations, Civil Appeals and Writs, Probate, Law Practice Management, Personal Injury, Civil Trials and Evidence, Alternative Dispute Resolution, and Federal Ninth Circuit Civil Appellate Practice. Each title will be searchable in an individual WESTLAW database. Future plans include the possibility of adding other TRG Practice Guides to WESTLAW.

The California Practice Guide: Civil Procedure Before Trial database (TRG-CACIVP) contains the full text of TRG's California Practice Guide: Civil Procedure Before Trial, which provides a step-by-step approach to civil procedure and practice in California state courts. This guide outlines issues facing litigators at each phase of a lawsuit. Topics include jurisdiction and venue, pleadings, discovery, motion practice, settlement, and arbitration.
