Law Review Tip 1: Use WestCheck.com

All Articles Add comments

WestCheck.comSome students are crazy enough to go from finals into trying out for Law Review in their law school’s write-on competition. For those students (I am one of them), a few tips will be posted here.

The first tip: Before you submit your law review article, consider submitting it to westcheck.com to see if all the cases you used are good law. It’s fairly easy and can prevent big mistakes.

    Actually that won’t verify they are good law. It still relies on Keycite which isn’t 100%. The only guarantee it is good law is to shepardize. Try Shepards Briefcheck.com, https://w3.lexis.com/shepardsbriefcheck/signon.html. It covers published and unpublished opinions, which given the new Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 32.1, could be a HUGE deal.

    Great point. Thanks.

    Who says Westlaw can’t verify unpublished opinions?

    Besides, why would you be using unpublished opinions in a Law Review Write-On article?
