Practical Law for courts

Accuracy and confidence, fast

As a judge presiding over a new matter, a law clerk staying on top of a full docket, or a librarian handling an 11th hour request from chambers, you need access to the type of guidance and practical insight you could gain from a trusted colleague or outside counsel.

  • New judges join the bench all the time and few lawyers join the bench knowing “everything” about the matters they’ll be presiding over
  • Judges have the added pressure of needing to get up to speed on subject matters and legal issues quickly and confidently to be able to issue sound rulings
  • Law clerks have limited time - must juggle all their duties in chambers and keep up with all the cases and legal issues
  • Finally, the lawyers who advise the court as an entity must be ready to handle any issue that comes up in the administration of the court as an organization.
