New Legal Search Engine Launched by Thomson West

Westlaw WebPlus is now available on the web and within Westlaw. It's a free Web search engine created by the Westlaw editorial staff to improve web searching by filtering search results based on legal relevance.

Westlaw WebPlus can be used for finding:

  • local news or regulations not found on Westlaw
  • government agency information related to a transaction or issue
  • recent or informal commentary on a legal issue
  • company information, direct from the source
  • information on a person to supplement public records found on Westlaw
  • general Web information about legal topics

You can narrow your search results by applying one of three filters: subject, domain type or file format.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't think webplus is available outside Westlaw. And is there really a compelling reason to use it instead of other search engines? Do you really trust a Westlaw branded search engine?
