Friday, April 13, 2007 Launches New Legal Search Tool has launched a new search tool called Quest that promises more relevant law-
related searching. The new search engine offers the
option of searching either the network of
sites or a broader range of legal sites on the web,
including legal blogs.

Robert Ambrogi, who reviews Quest on his
blog, LawSites (4/12/2007), praises Quest's "ability to
filter search results by date ranges or by the content
source or type." For example, a researcher may select
to view results only from the National Law Journal or
may select only articles or decisions from the search
results. Another nice feature is the ability to search
within your results, similar to Westlaw's "Locate" or
LexisNexis' "Focus" functions.
