Westlaw's decided it's time for the Next step! Beginning July 1, 2014, Westlaw will no longer provide access to WestlawClassic for the law school community nationwide. An announcement will be made on Tuesday, April 15th on the Westlaw main screen to notify users of this change. Please note that we will maintain access to WestlawNext without any interruption. So, if you'd like to say goodbye to Classic, you have until June 30th to do so. If you have any questions, please feel free to come by the Reference Desk. Thanks!
