EAGAN, Minn. – Thomson Reuters today announced that the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts (AO) has awarded a new multi-year contract to Thomson Reuters to provide legal research solutions to the federal judiciary, building on a relationship that spans more than 30 years. WestlawNext® will give legal professionals in the federal judiciary access to the industry-leading legal research solution to explore and analyze matters before the bench and serve as a primary source of online legal, business news and public records information.
