WestlawNext Update: $3,400/Hour Legal Research Has Arrived

Legal Blog Watch – “We (and everybody else) have previously reported on the beginnings of the rollout of WestlawNext. Part of the marketing initiative was to conduct “roadshows,” where the Thomson Reuters folks could get a bunch of lawyers and/or academic users in a room and demonstrate why their new product was the proverbial greatest thing since sliced bread. The roadshows held earlier this month, as reported by Mark Giangrande at the Law Librarian Blog, began with an announcement that no questions about pricing would be entertained. However, in the past couple of weeks, some pricing information has come to light. And it’s an eye-opener. Well, the kind of eye-opener that makes you want to close them real tight again and hope the whole thing was a dream.”
