Enhanced Online Legal Research Resources Available at Ohio Supreme Court Law Library
The Supreme Court’s news service this morning announced patrons at the Supreme Court’s law library will now have free access to more resources when they perform legal research thanks to new upgrades obtained with a new contact with Westlaw, according to Erin Waltz, library public services manager, allowing WestlawNext to be available on two patron terminals, one each on the north and south sides of the 11th-floor library at the Thomas J. Moyer Ohio Judicial Center on South Front Street in Columbus, Ohio.
Waltz said the contract includes access to all major Ohio legal treatises, statutes, regulations, jury verdicts, and briefs, as well as civil and criminal pleadings, motions and memoranda. In addition, the contract includes access to case law, statutes, and regulations from the other 49 states and federal cases, statutes, regulations, and legal treatises.
The Court’s Law Library is open to the general public, providing a full range of services to all patrons in addition to providing library services to the Justices and Supreme Court staff, state legislature, state administrative agencies, and attorneys.
