Thomson West Introduces RegulationsPlus, Improved Regulations Research on Westlaw


New tool offers legal researchers relevant, efficient, comprehensive federal regulatory research

EAGAN, Minn., 02/24/2006, Federal regulations research just became easier for legal and compliance professionals with the introduction of Westlaw® RegulationsPlusTM. This new solution from Thomson West provides the most comprehensive view of federal regulations and access to the most relevant interpretative materials. Thomson West is a business within The Thomson Corporation (NYSE: TOC; TSX: TOC).

“Westlaw offers the best online legal research experience, and it’s only enhanced by the addition of RegulationsPlus,” said Andrew Martens, senior vice president of New Product Development. “Westlaw RegulationsPlus brings together all the materials needed to interpret and verify federal regulations, in one place.”

Traditionally, regulatory research is a complicated process, often requiring legal and compliance professionals to consult several sources and cross-reference data frequently. With RegulationsPlus, Westlaw now makes federal regulations research easier. It reduces the cumbersome “find, update and interpret” process down to one easy step.

Relevant Information

Through RegulationsPlus, Westlaw customers can search all sections of the Code of Federal Regulations®, as well as past versions, amendments, pending changes and citing court documents. In addition, RegulationsPlus features Thomson West’s exclusive editorially created federal case law summaries, historical Federal Register® content, agency publications and other related analyses.

Efficient Process

RegulationsPlus provides immediate access to federal regulations through West’s new, exclusive, editorially created Index. For the first time, professionals can view federal regulations along with case law interpretations, analytical material and all versions of regulatory documents. RegulationsPlus ties this information together so a user can spend less time researching and more time reviewing and analyzing the results.

Comprehensive Results

RegulationsPlus is backed by Westlaw’s comprehensive body of federal regulations and related content. Users can now finish research more quickly, with the knowledge that it is complete.

Westlaw RegulationsPlus will help legal and compliance professionals realize better value from their Westlaw experience. Federal regulatory research will come together with one search, bringing content to the customer in a faster, more efficient way. And if there’s a question, a West reference attorney is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Calls are always complimentary with a Westlaw subscription.
