The New Westlaw HK has been designed with new content specific search templates for Cases, Legislation, Commentary, Journals, Current Awareness, News and each of the UK content types.   Each content type has 2 templates:

  • Basic Search
  • Advanced Search

 

Westlaw HK - Cases Search Template

The Basic Search provides the key fields required for most general legal research.  For example ‘Cases’ uses:

  • Free Text
  • Party Names
  • Citation

 

However, the Advanced Search enables detailed researchers to target their legal research more specifically to cases needing to fulfil a number of criteria.  For Example ‘Cases’ also has the following extra fields:

  • Subject/Catchword
  • Legislation Title
  • Legislation Provision No.
  • Cases Cited (Party)
  • Cases Cited (Citation)
  • Court
  • Judge
  • Date

This means users could potentially find out which decisions on a specific topic a specific judge has made within a specific timeframe so users can assess the rulings made by judges on specific issues.

Each content type’s template is unique to the content to enable users to get the most relevant results for their search.

BROWSE TO FILTER YOUR SEARCH

The content type search is automatically filtered to the content on display in the browse section as you browse down into more specific collections of content.

E.g. in Cases, if you select to browse into Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal Reports, then you will only then be searching in this collection of cases.  In most cases ‘What you see is what you search’.

 

These new search templates simplify legal research by removing the need to write complex search strings with terms & connectors.  Users can just enter the specific terms into the search fields and Westlaw HK adds all the terms and connectors for you behind the scenes using the ‘AND’ connector for each separate field used.

Don’t forget space = ‘AND’ in the new Westlaw HK

Subscribers with United Kingdom content will have noticed a change to the Westlaw UK tab.  This tab has been updated to be customizable for ease of usage.  Now customers can easily select databases of interest by checking the corresponding box listed below the search engine.  Terms and Connectors, along with Natural Language search options, allow the user to craft detailed search queries for more accurate results. 

The tab is ready to be used as is, but we suggest a few easy modifications to take full advantage of this new tab.  The screen shot below shows the “Content and Display Options” drop down window open by clicking either “show” or the drop down arrow (note:  this option is found on the upper left of the tab screen).  Once open we suggest the user places a check mark in the boxes under “Database Display Options” (right hand side of screen) for items you would like to see displayed next to your individual databases. 

Content and Display Options Opened with Database Display Styles Checked

 Simply hit “save options” to make the display changes to your tab.  

Database Content Display for UK Tab

The various content categories, as well as each database are now customizable with the same “drag and drop” features as other Westlaw Tabs.  The user may move entire categories (or individual databases) into position for easier usage.  Also note, on the default set up that the “Quick Search” templates are still available similar to the original UK Tab. 

Please contact Bill White our Westlaw Trainer at training@westlaw.com.hk if you have any questions about this new tab.  Individual or group sessions can be scheduled to prove how the new tab can improve your workflow.
