ChronLaw is a computer-generated legal news service that aggregates headlines from news sources worldwide, groups similar stories together and displays them according to the specialized interests of legal professionals.
Traditionally, readers first pick a news publication and then look for headlines that interest them. With ChronLaw, readers can discover, read and access news articles in a different way, with more personalized options and a wider variety of perspectives from which to choose.
ChronLaw may offer links to several articles on every story, so readers can first decide what subject interests them and then select which publishers’ accounts of each story they would like to read. Then click on the headline that interests them and go directly to the site which published that story.
ChronLaw articles and multimedia are selected and ranked by computers that evaluate, among other things, how often and on what sites a story appears online. ChronLaw also may rank based on certain characteristics of news, such as content, freshness, location, relevance and diversity. As a result, stories are sorted without regard to political viewpoint or ideology and readers can choose from a wide variety of perspectives on any given story. We will strive to continue to improve ChronLaw by adding sources, fine-tuning our technology and providing ChronLaw to readers in even more regions.
