New platform of Westlaw UK
Thomson has launched a new interface for the Westlaw UK database which turns it into a truly user-friendly database. The areas for searching are Cases, Legislation, Journals, Current Awareness and EU. Each of these areas has a simple and an advanced search box where searches can be performed in a Google type fashion. It is also possible to browse the lists of journals, the issues of a single journal and the articles within one issue and obtain the full text in Word or PDF of an article that way. All references to case law, legislation, EU documents and articles in the database are crossreferenced with hyperlinks. The around 100 journals included in the database are from Sweet & Maxwell, Oxford UP and Cambridge UP and have strong focus on European issues. This makes Westlaw UK a very important research tool for UK law and for EU law.
