    ♫ You see more than I
    Daniel you’re a star in the face of the sky…♫

    Lyrics by: Bernie Taupin, music and recorded by Elton John.

    Subsequent to the early glimpse into WestlawNext that Thompson Reuters provided to a group of us in Eagan, Minnesota, many of that august group have now posted their views on WestlawNext on the web. So without any further ado, here is a look at what they, and others, have seen:

  • My fellow colleague Simon Chester has posted an extensive review of the product along with screen shots on Slaw.
  • Robert Ambrogi (who unfortunately wasn’t in Eagan) posted his look at WestlawNext on his blog Robert Ambrogi’s LawSites.
  • Jason the Content Librarian (Jason Eiseman) sat down with Tom Boone, Greg Lambert of 3 Geeks and a Law Blog and Jason Wilson who were at the preview and recorded a 40 minute video of their impressions of the product (note that each of them have posted their thoughts on their own blogs).
  • Robert Ambrogi has also posted additional views on legal blog watch on (note – his last blog post on has just been posted! We are going to miss you Robert!).
  • The New York Times as well as the ABA Journal have posted reviews.
  • Carolyn Elefant posted her views on
  • Betsy (Elizabeth) McKenzie has posted on Out of the Jungle.
  • Laura Bergus of Legal Geekery has posted a “WestlawNext: Special Edition Legal Geekery Podcast“.
  • Lisa Solomon posted a review exploring pricing and other thoughts on her blog Legal Research and Writing Pro.
  • You can sign up for a launch day alert here.
  • I hope I haven’t omitted anyone who has posted their early views and thoughts on the new WestlawNext. In the interests of fair disclosure, Thomson Reuters did pay expenses to travel to Eagan to see the preview (brrrr…it is cold there compared to warm Vancouver!).

    By visiting these other sites hopefully you will gain perspective by reading the thoughts of other legal bloggers, writers and videographers who are stars in the face of the sky.
