When the United States Supreme Court issued its ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller in June, striking down a ban on gun possession in D.C., a team at West went to work to get this landmark case loaded to Westlaw, complete with the insight and analysis that is critical to legal researchers.
The West editorial process involves specific steps, including fact-checking, headnoting and classification. This Westcast video podcast highlights that process. The result is a rare glimpse behind the scenes at the skills and trusted editorial experience involved in the daily work here at West.

Incidentally, West’s Tom Trenkner, who you saw at the end of the podcast, had a unique interest in the Heller case. He was among several colleagues from West and Thomson Reuters who were invited to attend the oral arguments in the Heller case when it was before the Supreme Court.
