Lawtel boosts online service

THE ONLINE law reporting service Lawtel claims it now provides better coverage of recent decisions than any other source.

Its new service involves a team of barristers summarising ex tempore or non-written judgments taken from High Court and Court of Appeal cases by Lawtel transcribers which are then placed on-screen the following morning.

The service is one of a package of initiatives announced by Lawtel, including the supply of daily updates by e-mail directly from as many mailboxes within each firm as is required, a means of ordering judgments online, the ability to order official judgments in advance directly through Lawtel's library service, and faster links between statutes and secondary legislation.

Lawtel's publisher Nigel Almeida claimed the service was now "faster" and more "extensive".
