This action will not impact the security of the Drafting Assistant application in 5.571.2038 and previous builds, as Microsoft will continue to provide security updates for the Internet Explorer 11 Runtime. Please refer to this article for details. The Drafting Assistant Search Westlaw UK integration does rely on Internet Explorer 11 and will not function after end of support in 5.571.2038 and prior builds.
