Legal Databases

Database Name Description
On August 1, 2015 the WestLaw Campus Research is being retired.
Campus Research provides access to a comprehensive collection of news, business, and law-related resources. The Law section contains federal and state case law, the U.S. Code Annotated, the Code of Federal Regulations, American Jurisprudence 2d, American Law Reports, some law materials from the European Union, and content from over 800 law reviews and journals.
WestlawNext allows customers to search without first identifying which Westlaw product they want to look through. Customers no longer have to know where the answer is before entering their search. Once a search is entered, the WestlawNext displays a faceted search result that allows searchers to jump directly to a particular kind of document.  How to Search This Database
