Transactional Law Databases

Lexis+ and Westlaw each contain subject-specific legal collections.  The library provides access to additional resources for in-depth subject specific research.


LexisNexis publishes Practical Guidance.  This practice-focused collection of resources and tasks empowers the researcher in the transactional law setting to quickly understand an area of law and draft needed documents.  


Westlaw's practitioner-focused platform is called Practical Law.  It is similar to Lexis+ in design and document types.  These document types include resource kits, practice notes, standard clauses and documents, and checklists, among other.  Researchers should begin their research by locating a resource kit as these collect the various other document types into one place and provide an overview of the area of law.
