  Westlaw - Key Number 2014
 

Bestlaw for Westlaw - Next that is

Sam Glover, The Lawyerist, posts a brief review of the Bestlaw Chrome addon for WestlawNext by developer and now 2nd year Berkeley Law School student Joe Mornin - Bestlaw for Chrome Adds the Features Westlaw Forgot. I'm not sure if it provides what WestlawNext forgot to include but, according to Sam, it has some interesting capabilities with recommendations to try it out by Bob Berring and Lawrence Lessig.

If you think this must be new, you're right - it was published/released this week on Wed, 9/24. I sent an email asking Joe what feature he thought was most important. He responded quickly, "Definitely the one-click Bluebook citation feature." See also Patience Haggin's The Recorder article published last evening, Law Student to Westlaw: There, I Fixed That For You, for more information about Bestlaw and what Joe has planned for the tool in the future.

Why we need to learn lessons over and over again - or do we?

Lessons Learned is a type of knowledge management initiative where participants in an action or actions taken by a group while working with processes, selling to prospects, etc. The goal with such an initiative is that the organization will make whatever they are doing better or learn from lessons that took place during the actions. While valuable, it is one of the hardest types of KM to get right. Nick Milton shares his companies model for lessons learned and David Gurteen shares a brief book review for a book about lessons learned via blog posts today.
