Wolters Kluwer white paper examines significant Executive and Congressional actions in 2017

Wolters Kluwer legal experts provide comprehensive analysis of laws, proposed rules, and executive actions, and offer perspective on trends across 15 areas of the law.

Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. has issued a new white paper, "An Attorney's-Eye View of Significant Executive and Congressional Actions in 15 Practice Areas," providing analysis, trends, and insight on activity from the Trump Administration and 115th Congress.

Authored by Wolters Kluwer attorney-experts Kathryn S. Beard, J.D. and Kelly J. Rooney, J.D., M.P.H., the white paper is the culmination of extensive monitoring and tracking by Wolters Kluwer's team of analysts since the beginning of this year. Covering more than 15 practice areas of the law, it provides summaries on executive actions, legislative actions, rules and their impacts, statistics on legislative progress, and insight into legal trends.

“The Trump administration made several promises during the 2016 campaign, and in the midst of a highly publicized legislative session, it can be difficult to track true progress,” said Rooney. “Our team at Wolters Kluwer developed this white paper to provide our customers with perspective on what the President and Congress have enacted thus far, and highlight the impact on several areas of the law.”

As one of the leading providers of content and workflow solutions for legal professionals in the U.S., Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. continues to innovate its offerings to provide the most relevant, up-to-date information around legal and regulatory shifts. The recently launched Federal Developments Knowledge Center is a solution that leverages the company's unparalleled content and cutting-edge artificial intelligence to help legal practitioners survey the transforming landscape of legislation, regulations and executive actions.

“Since taking office on January 20, the President has signed several executive orders, and federal agencies have delayed and repealed many existing regulations, but little legislation related to the President's 100-day plan has actually passed,” said Beard. “We will continue to monitor the Trump administration and Congress to keep our customers informed on legislative actions and their impact.”
