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. 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.
