New election law coverage on Westlaw
The presidential race in the United States is heading down the home stretch. Just in time for the election season, West is providing some new election resources on Westlaw. They’re free to subscribers, through the national elections.
A new Elections tab, which users can customize on their Westlaw interface, provides access to informatin like voter identification and campaign financing laws, and election-related news and legal filings.
Also, ”Election-2008″ content within the Elections tab provides researchers with trial filings relevant to election law – such as the right to vote and ballot validity – filed in state and federal courts, as well as court motions, memoranda, pleadings, trial briefs, non-expert depositions, discovery and non-expert affidavits, proposed court orders, agreements, verdicts, settlements and other trial filings.
Westlaw subscribers also will be able to review election-related topics as covered in daily newspapers, magazines, journals and transcripts.
Again, the Election-2008 database within the new Westlaw Elections tab is available free beginning today, and through the national elections, to all Westlaw subscribers.
