The Library will organise a training session WestlawNext and Westlaw UK, Friday 21 April 2023 from 11:00 to 13:00 p.m. in room 1.213 at the Inner City Library.

This training session will help you become more familiar with the Westlaw databases: Westlaw UK and WestlawNext and how to use their functionalities.

Westlaw UK gives you access to UK (case law, legislation, news, journals, commentary, Current Awareness alerts) and EU legal materials; WestlawNext provides all additional international materials including jurisdictional coverage for US, Hong Kong, Canada, and Australia as well as topical materials such as other international journals, intellectual property, patent information, and arbitration.

The following topics will be addressed:

  • What’s Westlaw and what information can be found?
  • What are the best ways to gain access to this information (i.e. how to efficiently find sources)?
  • How to use the Westlaw functionality (search fields, search history, print options)?

The training session on the use of the databases Westlaw will be held by Tom Delsaer, Senior International Trainer with Thomson Reuters. This training will be useful for students, researchers, and teaching staff at Maastricht University.

If you would like to attend this session, please enrol through our website.

If you have any specific questions which you would like to be answered during the training, please do not hesitate to contact Angélique Bessems prior to the training.
