WestlawNext Welcomes You Back

What is WestlawNext?

This revolution in legal research may not be more powerful than a speeding bullet, but it certainly will change the way most of us research, and the ways in which we incorporate our research into our written work.WestlawNext debuted to lawyers in January, so some of you may have already encountered it where you work.  If you have not, the odds are that you will soon meet it.  We want you to be prepared, to be able to use WestlawNext both in your work here at C-K and also in your work as law clerks and lawyers.  So we’ve scheduled training sessions, and we urge each of you to attend at least the basic “Intro” session.  First-year students will have WestlawNext training in their Legal Writing classes later in the semester, so the training sessions listed below are intended for upper-class students.

Weekly Study Aid Raffles

Every week, the Westlaw Student Representatives at Chicago-Kent will be running a raffle for a study aid.  To win, stop by lab 900 to enter your name into the weekly drawing.  Each week’s winner will be notified via e-mail on Friday afternoon.  Even better, you may enter your name as many times as you wish. There is no limit! But please, do not remove the book from its place so that everyone can see it.           

Opportunities to Earn Westlaw Rewards Points

Westlaw encourages 1Ls (and every law student with a good research problem) to make an appointment with a Westlaw Student Representative, during their office hours.  Each student who makes (and keeps) an appointment will earn Westlaw Rewards Points for it.  Ask a Student Representative for details.
