Legal Research Tool

Come to the Kalamazoo County Law Library and use Westlaw, a helpful database and legal research tool that enables users to locate:

  • Legal cases
  • State and federal laws
  • Administrative code
  • Topical treatises
  • Legal forms
  • and much more

New to the Law Library is WestlawNext. This database has all of the same content as the older version of Westlaw but with newer, easy-to-use functionality. For researchers who want West's thorough indexing depth yet desire a more Keyword-centered approach to searching, this database may be for you. 

In-Library Use Only

Because of our subscription agreement, WestlawNext must be used in the Law Library and is not available from home or from one of our branch libraries.
