The Almanac of the Federal Judiciary is a publication that provides biographic profiles and financial disclosure information for every federal judge, including those sitting on the Supreme Court, Appellate Courts, Districts Courts, Bankruptcy Courts, and Specialized Courts.

Now, the Almanac’s publisher, Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S., is partnering with the company Courtroom Insight to provide access to additional information about the judges, including reviews by attorneys who have practiced in front of the judge and the judge’s rulings on legal challenges to expert witnesses.

This extends a partnership between the two companies announced last year that enabled users of Courtroom Insight to access WK’s database of labor arbitration content, which includes arbitrators’ awards and relevant biographical information. More recently, that was extended to provide users of Kluwer Arbitration with access to Courtroom Insight content.

To take advantage of this new integration between the Almanac and Courtroom Insight, a user must be a subscriber to both services.

The partnership will allow legal professionals to better prepare for cases by researching the presiding judges, the companies say.

Courtroom Insight is a customized knowledge management platform that enables law firms to capture, share and analyze information about arbitrators, expert witnesses, judges and attorneys.

“We are pleased that we have been able to give our mutual customers multiple points of access to content through Wolters Kluwer and Courtroom Insight, extending efficient workflow solutions for legal professionals backed by deep domain expertise,” said Ken Crutchfield, vice president & general manager of legal markets at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S.
