Legal research databases

Access to Westlaw Campus Research has been discontinued, effective 7/1/2016. Electronic resources are periodically evaluated in terms of their fit for the curriculum, usage, and cost, and the library's recent analysis of Westlaw Campus Research determined that access to Lexis-Nexis Academic: Legal Research was sufficient for the BU curriculum. 
To access Lexis-Nexis Academic: Legal Research, go to the library website > Databases A-Z & By Subject, and select 'L', scrolling until you reach the database. You may search for Federal and State Cases, Federal and State Statutes and Regulations, Landmark Cases, Legal Reference, Law Reviews, Patent Search, & Shepard's® Citations (click on 'Search by Subject or Topic' to view the different options for searching).

As always, if you have a question about library databases and resources, Ask A Librarian.
