Westlaw tip: Add a temporary tab for a single session

July 2, 2010

From the Westlaw Reference AttorneysDo you have a one-time research assignment and need to learn more about the topic? Westlaw has a tab that can help.

You can display a topical tab for one research session without having to save the tab. To try it, click on the “Add a Tab” link on the right-hand side of your Westlaw window. Click on “Add Westlaw Tabs,” scroll down to the topical tabs section and you will see tabs on topics ranging from Animals to Medical Malpractice to Public Utilities.

If you click the blue underlined name of the tab, it will display the tab for this research session and the tab will be removed when you log off. To keep the tab around, you can use the checkbox next to the tab’s name.
