The best darn acronym search method, period

August 25, 2010

From the Westlaw Reference AttorneysWestlaw tip: If you are using an acronym or an abbreviation in a search, always put periods between the letters; you never know what punctuation a court or author will use. By placing periods between the letters, Westlaw will search for your term with or without periods. E.g., using the search term U.S.A. in the database SCT (U.S. Supreme Court cases) will return more results than the search term USA.
