New ProView E-Reader Makes Legal Research More Efficient

By Andrew Chow, Esq. on February 01, 2012 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Attention small firm attorneys: The future of legal research is here. The new Thomson Reuters ProView app for iPad is custom-designed for lawyers, and could make clunky hardbound books and updates a thing of the past.

ProView is more powerful than other e-readers because it comes with a unique lawyerly feature: All of your notes and highlights will automatically transfer to later editions of your e-books, if you're signed up for updates.

The ProView app is free to download at Apple's App Store, and one e-book title -- McKinney's New York Rules of Court, Federal District -- is available for free in its entirety. But those aren't the only reasons to give ProView a trial run. Consider these advantages:

  • Thomson Reuters ProView provides automatic, built-in links to WestlawNext, so lawyers don't have to jot down case names, citations, or sections of code. Just tap the screen, and a wealth of Westlaw research is at your fingertips.
  • If your iPad is lost, stolen, or damaged, you'll still be able to access your ProView e-books and notes -- they're all stored in a cloud, and always available on the ProView website which works with desktop computers and laptops.
  • And just think how much lighter your legal load could be -- literally -- if you replace hardbound books with e-books and the ProView app for iPad. No need to box up your books, treatises, and notes to cart into court -- that's so 20th century.

Check out this video shows some of ProView's powerful functions:

Along with the free download of McKinney's New York Rules of Court, Federal District, ProView is also offering free excerpts of social.lawyers: Transforming Business Development by Jane Navarre.

You can download the free e-book samples at the Westlaw store, after downloading the free Thomson Reuters ProView app for iPad. Other e-book titles are available for purchase, but you'll need a Westlaw OnePass account to buy them.
