Two Great Names. Reuters and Westlaw ... and One New Site
Thomson Reuters News and Insight "provides legal news from Reuters with supporting documentation and analysis from Westlaw." Yes, of course, you must have a user account to access the Westlaw material.
Free Reuters news to push Westlaw usage, oddly interesting marketing concept that if not masquerading as at least is tying law and business journalism to very expensive online legal search. I doubt anyone is going to rush off to acquire a Westlaw license to offset TR's web production costs but, what the heck, it will just take a couple of mouse clicks to out-of-plan transactional or hourly charges to do that.
