Stay ahead of your competition with fast-breaking legal news and deep analysis
With reporters in more than a dozen major cities, the Law360 service is known for its large, highly skilled editorial team with legal journalistic expertise, along with exceptional technology for identifying developments and expediting news delivery.
Many Law360 reporters and editors have years of experience covering legal news, and all editorial staff receive specialized training unique to legal developments and coverage. Law360 is committed to providing professional coverage of most events published on the Law360 site the same day or within 24 hours. Areas of focus include litigation, regulation, compliance and enforcement, corporate deals and more across more than 50 practice areas, industries and jurisdictions. You can see a list of coverage areas here.
With approximately 200 articles published each day, the editorial team examines legal issues at a detailed level that most mainstream business publications do not—and does it faster than many other legal publications, which may publish a few days to a few weeks after news happens. In addition to same-day news, Law360 also offers in-depth articles with deeper analysis on developing issues and practitioner-written articles that dig into trending topics.
Many librarians use Law360 to stay abreast of important industry updates, support colleagues with current awareness and research, and help their practice stay ahead of the competition.
