vLex and American Bar Association launch Global Partnership

Posted by david-hand | 24 February 2020

A new partnership between vLex and the American Bar Association (ABA) brings hundreds of valuable and authoritative legal books and journals to millions of legal practitioners, law firms and educational institutions around the world.

As one of the largest legal publishers in the world, the American Bar Association publishes a wide selection of books and journals across multiple subject areas. Now, a broad selection of these titles will be available on vLex’s unique legal research and intelligence platform alongside global legal content from over 100 countries.

This partnership brings a wealth of benefits to international practitioners, comparative researchers and law librarians alike. With advanced legal technology features such as AI-driven search as a gateway to essential primary and secondary legal materials all in one location, vLex, enhanced by ABA content, delivers unparalleled value for vLex users worldwide. The new books and journals available on vLex will cover areas of the law such as business, litigation, intellectual property, international, tax, cybersecurity and arbitration.

Beyond the benefits to vLex customers, this partnership provides ABA authors with an expanded global audience and new platform on which to feature their legal content. vLex’s CEO Lluis Faus shares his enthusiasm for the new partnership:

“This is a key partnership for vLex globally. The ABA is the largest American legal publisher in terms of secondary source content, and through this collaboration we will be able to integrate world-leading thought leadership content on subject areas including intellectual property, international law and many others for our users.”

“Our partnership with vLex is an exciting and meaningful one for the ABA, allowing us to advance our historic mission of sharing the rule of law globally and reach our valued international audience,” said Donna Gollmer, Director ABA Publishing.

This announcement follows a series of vLex partnerships and acquisitions announced in 2019.  Recent announcements contributing to rapid content growth to better support users include the largest collection of Latin American Gazettes, partnerships with Lexblog and JDSupra and the acquisition of Justis Publishing UK.
