LEXIS-NEXIS, WESTLAW SIGN CONTENT AGREEMENTS.

Both Lexis-Nexis (Dayton, OH) and Westlaw (Eagan, MN) have signed agreements with information providers to enhance content on their business and legal online information services. Lexis-Nexis has signed deals with Brief Reporter (New York), the National Institute of Trial Advocacy (Notre Dame, IN) and Marketspan (New York), while Westlaw has signed a deal with the Harvard Law Review Association (Cambridge, MA).

Brief Reporter (BRI) has agreed to offer to Lexis-Nexis all of its more than 4000 legal briefs covering dozens of legal subject areas. The briefs are obtained by Brief Reporter from attorneys throughout the country and are edited, indexed and abstracted by BRI. Each brief, with index and abstract, is full-text searchable.

Also, the National Association of Trial Advocacy (NITA) has agreed to add its law interpretations to Lexis- Nexis. Interpretations will be available beginning in the fourth quarter. In addition, NITA and Lexis-Nexis have agreed to participate in new product development combining the intellectual property of each organization.

Finally, Marketspan has agreed to add its civil docket summaries from 84 federal district courts to Lexis-Nexis. The files, which are updated daily by Marketspan's "CaseStream" service, are currently available at lexis.com and to users of the company's session manager software. Under the agreement, the two companies will also link the summaries with their corresponding docket reports. The links will be made via the computerized federal dockets "PACER" (Public Access to Court Electronic Records) beginning in 2000.

Westlaw said that it has begun offering complete coverage of the Harvard Law Review from 1949 to present.
