Practical Law by Westlaw

Practical Law is a practical resource within Westlaw designed to help both litigation and transactional attorneys understand legal matters and complete tasks efficiently. It contains a variety of materials such as:

  •  Practice Notes: Simple but thorough overviews of a topic. Often a great place to start.
  • Standard Documents: Sample legal documents that can be useful as a guide when drafting your own legal documents.
  • Decision making aids such as checklists, flowcharts, and timelines.

Resources are well integrated with each other. If you click the “Knowledge Map” link for a resource in the result list (or “Explore Related Content” from within a resource), you can see all the other resources related to a resource.

To access Practical Law from the Westlaw homepage, you can select the link at the bottom of the screen in the Key Features area, or you can choose Practical Law from the drop down menu at the top left of the screen.
