VersusLaw was founded in 1985 as Timeline Publishing Company. The company's focus was originally to provide the
legal community with accurate, current, and in-depth information exclusively on one topic - professional liability.
The Company created a monthly journal on legal ethics titled Lawyers Liability Review (LLR) and published the first
issue in February 1986.
In the early 1990s, Timeline began the electronic collection and distribution of court opinions and other primary
research materials. Timeline was an early adopter of the World Wide Web and in August 1995 was among the first
web-based legal content providers, carrying opinions from the U.S. Supreme Court, the Federal Circuit Courts of
Appeals, and State appellate courts. Reflecting a new direction and the company's commitment to electronic
distribution of legal research materials, in 1996, Timeline Publishing changed its name to VersusLaw, Inc., and
launched a new web site devoted exclusively to the distribution of primary materials to the legal profession.
Today, VersusLaw continues to broaden its focus and mission: to provide all legal practitioners access to current,
in-depth, easy-to-use legal research, regardless of the size of their firms, by using the power of technology. The
company has a deep-seated belief that knowledge is power and that this power should be available to everyone
quickly, easily and affordably.
