Westlaw tip: Find a case by party name with the Title field

November 17, 2010

From the Westlaw Reference AttorneysWhat’s in a name? Well, did you know you can search for cases involving a particular party by using the Title field in a case database?

For example, if you wanted a case where the United States is a party, add ti(“United States” U.S.) to your Terms and Connecters search. This will look for either the phrase “United States” or the term “U.S.” in the caption of a case.
