Bermuda law no longer an island in the (gulf)stream
From 1st Jul,y Justis Publishing will exclusively host the Bermuda Law Reports on its Justis full-text online legal library. Previously available only on their own isolated website, the detailed judgments, which go back to 1986, bring Bermuda law into Justis Publishing’s increasingly international mix of legal research material.
Masoud Gerami, managing director of Justis Publishing, said “The Bermuda Law Reports agreement is an indication of a trend where valuable content from smaller publishers can be placed alongside more mainstream case law and legislation databases on Justis. The arrangement relieves the publishers from the burden of maintaining their own platforms, which will hopefully lead to new or expanded content. It will also give Justis yet more relevant content to present to its prospects and customer base.”
Karen Skiffington, editor or the Bermuda Law Reports, said “I am thrilled that the Bermuda Law Reports will be available now through Justis. Not only will my existing customers benefit by the improved interface and functionality, but new customers can be introduced to the service. Bermuda is an important jurisdiction in Commonwealth Law, especially in the areas of arbitration, insurance and reinsurance, general company matters and trusts. Justis and the Bermuda Law Reports are working together to bring law into the global community.”
