The Legal News-Intelligence System

A Newsdesk Editorial System, AccessLegalNews facilitates the sharing of customized legal news and analysis via law firm Intranet-Internet portals.

Applying information management technologies and innovative editorial processes to multiple sources of legal news and database content, it integrates the tools and practices required to:

  • eliminate duplicate and superficial content;

  • relate what's significant to specific points of colleague and client interests.


It thus enables the efficient delivery to busy, highly focused colleagues and clients of not only the top firm-wide and departmental news and analysis they need to know but also highly relevant, customized alerts on their professional interests and the particular client accounts, people contacts, markets, products and regions they also follow.

In the AccessLegalNews editorial system, human editorial judgment is integrated with state-of-the-art news filtering, key-word identification and subject categorization technologies. Current information syndicated from firm-wide, office and departmental sources and specified external sources is filtered through knowledge-management software. The content selected is then edited by AccessLegalNews trained analysts: first, to eliminate what's redundant, dated and superficial; second, by applying a proprietary Access-developed Editorial Standard, to relate what's new, fresh and significant to specific points of employee-audience interest - to deliver content employee-audience users can use. From the indexed news feed thus produced, transmitted via electronic-mail networks, can be extracted content closely tailored to employee-audience information needs.


So produced, both top news and highly relevant, customized alerts can be delivered:

  • to whatever scale audience desired, from multi-site enterprise groups to single individuals;

  • in real-time or on a periodic basis;

  • to whatever receiving platforms recipients specify.
