WestlawNext

WestlawNext, a new search platform from Westlaw with a powerful search engine, is available now at Hastings. Hastings is participating in the pre-release of WestlawNext to law schools. You will see an option to select WestlawNext on the top boarder of the Westlaw Welcome screen once you have signed on. It is not necessary to select a database before searching on WestlawNext. In web-searching fashion, simply type your search in the search box and WestlawNext will return results sorted by primary and secondary sources, as well as West Keycite reports for case citations. WestlawNext is designed to be easy to use and intuitive. You can use either the single searchbox or select the advanced search option. Feel free to stop by the reference desk and ask the reference librarian for a demonstration.
