Westlaw Next

Posted By on September 7, 2010

I hope you are all enjoying Westlaw Next … which you are now able to access via your normal Westlaw OnePass user name and password.
If you go to lawschool.westlaw.com and sign in, you should see something like this:

Across the top of your screen (blue background with white letters) you should have a choice to enter classic Westlaw , WestlawNext, Twen, or LawSchool Exchange (also Bookstore or BarBri). Just click on WestlawNext and you should be good to go.

If you do use WestlawNext, please keep the following in mind:

1. You must print to your attached printer (or download and then print to the network printer you typically use).  In other words, with WestlawNext, you cannot send print jobs to the dedicated Westlaw printers.

2.  As of right now, WestlawNext does not contain all the content of classic Westlaw.  It will, however, it does not yet. I have noticed this to be particularly true for court documents and international materials but also for miscellaneous other publications. If you do not find what you think you ought, try the search on classic Westlaw.
