Foundation renews Westlaw contract

Westlaw

The Florida Bar Foundation has renewed its contract with Westlaw for five years. Westlaw, an online legal database platform, provides case histories, form builders and sophisticated research tools for lawyers. The Foundation’s subscription allows more than 20 Florida legal aid organizations to access Westlaw’s many tools at a reduced rate. As the account holder, the Foundation manages payment to Westlaw and is reimbursed by each legal aid provider. The Foundation was the first statewide IOTA program in the nation to facilitate this type of agreement. The Foundation’s investment in Westlaw reduces the cost of it for legal aid providers, allowing them to put more funds toward other services, ultimately benefiting legal aid clients.
