Law 360: In Depth

This is the third in a four part series blog post spotlighting the LexisNexis’ Law360.

One of Law 360’s most unique features is its In-Depth Analysis of different issues. As mentioned previously, Law 360 employs reporters in 12 major cities; some of these reporters are “Senior” reporters and write articles about different topics within the legal community in very good detail. Below is a view of how to locate the In-Depth articles from the home page. One way is to click the three lines in the top left of the screen and pull up the navigation bar. The In-Depth section is at the top. The other option to find the In-Depth articles is through the small slide show on the right hand of the home page. If the In-Depth picture is not up, you can click the arrows on the slide show and flip to the right picture before clicking on the In-Depth section.

1. Law 360 Home Page to In Depth

Below is a picture of the In-Depth page. This page updates much slower than the Law 360 home page, which is comprised of mostly breaking and newer news. The largest picture at the top is the most current In-Depth article written by a senior reporter. Below that is the slightly older articles that discuss other topics in great detail.

2. Law 360 In Depth Home

Below here is the view of the top of an In-Depth article. Usually, the top will have a picture for the article and then go into their analysis. As stated, these articles are very in depth and detailed. Each takes time, research and analysis to complete. They are a very good source for more specific information than a normal Law 360 article but are much narrower in scope and availability.

3. Law 360 News Analysis Article

At the very bottom of the page, there is a list of older In-Depth articles. These articles are easy to access but are not as current as the ones listed in the main page. However, they are still In-Depth articles, and are the same level of quality as the others and therefore still a great resource on Law 360. Below is a view of that that section looks like.
