What’s the difference between Community and other online professional networks?

Community focuses only on topics that matter to small law firms. You are automatically set up to follow the most popular subjects and can select to follow others of interest. All members have been verified as active customers, ensuring the connections you make are relevant. Your up-front time investment is minimal; to get started, simply complete a three-step profile setup with no requirements to fill out lengthy background details. Best of all, it’s free of spam and unwanted ads (and you don’t have to pay a fee to achieve that). Spend less time sorting through the noise and more time interacting on how to practice law, manage your firm and grow your practice.

How does Community fit into my daily routine?

Access Community when you want, and how you want. If you are a Thomson Reuters Westlaw, Westlaw Edge, Practical Law or Practical Law Connect small law firm customer, click the Community link in the top-right corner of any screen to access it. If you are a FindLaw customer, visit your INSIGHT dashboard and click the Community link or chat bubble icon next to your name.

What can I expect from Community?

Community uses a post-and-comment format that you’re familiar with from other social platforms, but it goes far beyond that. You can access exclusive content pertaining to subjects of interest, get answers to product questions and participate in quick-polls on industry trends. While Community is primarily member-driven, legal experts from Thomson Reuters also participate and moderate discussions to ensure your questions are answered. Peer-to-peer discussions take place on topics ranging from legal industry trends and technology to starting a law firm and growing your business.
