Thomson Reuters is a business data provider operating in two divisions: Professional and Markets.
I worked in the professional division on the company's industry leading legal platform: WestlawNext.
WestlawNext is an online legal research service for professionals and students. Its predecessor, Westlaw, is the market leader for legal research. WestlawNext offers many substantial improvements for users such as a simplified search algorithm, folders for managing research, and an updated user interface.
I primarily worked on the document display for WestlawNext. I was one of the first developers on the project which grew to become one of the largest agile projects in the nation with well over 200 professionals building the application.
I became the primary engineer for several crucial features in WestlawNext. I helped architect an extensive XSLT framework to produce the XHTML for legal documents. I lead the implementation of document "chunking" to break large documents into smaller parts. I also helped build the annotations feature that allows users to highlight sections of documents, and add notes to portions of documents that are relevant to their research.
