Legal research just got easier in Westlaw

The major legal database Westlaw AU has recently been replaced with a new platform.

The same comprehensive content is still available, but with a new look, new navigation, and new features designed to improve efficiency and usability. It also includes access to new content, including legislation from all Australian jurisdictions.

The first time you access this new platform, you will be prompted to login with your FAN and password. This allows you to take advantage of greater, customised functionality such as history, folders, favourites, etc.

One major change to note is to the case citator, FirstPoint. This has been replaced with a ‘KeyCite’ and ‘Key Numbers’ system.

To learn how to navigate this new platform to get the information you need, check out the Thomson Reuters training and support website. Here you will find a suite of guides and videos, as well as upcoming webinars you can register to attend.
