Westlaw is one of the primary online legal research services for lawyers and legal professionals in the United States. Information resources on Westlaw include more than 40,000 databases of case law, state and federal statutes, administrative codes, newspaper and magazine articles, public records, law journals, law reviews, treatises, legal forms and other information resources. Attendees to this training program will learn how to use the Westlaw legal and legislative databases to find materials needed to complete a legislative history. These include materials like Congressional debate in the Congressional Record, House and Senate Reports, Presidential Documents, and Congressional Hearings, all used to find the intent behind a piece of legislation. This class will be taught by a Westlaw representative. All that are interested are invited. The DOI Library is located in the Main Interior Building, located at 1849 C Street, NW, Room 1151 in Washington. Space is limited so please contact the Library by phone at (202) 208-5815 or by e-mail at [log in to unmask] to let us know you will be coming. Please Note: This class is also being offered to remote users as a simultaneous online webinar via WebEx.
