See how it works
Example scenario: a small firm that does business law and litigation is being asked to defend their first race discrimination claim. Suit is filed under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. No one at the firm has every defended a Title VII claim.
Start with a simple search for “what is title vii” in Westlaw Edge to get the basics. Leverage Practical Law to narrow your results. The third resource listed in the Practical Law search results is spot on.
Plus, get the resources you need to defend the claim. The Practical Law editors provide links to related content, such as checklists.
Start assessing the facts of this case by looking at what elements the plaintiff has to prove. The first query is “What are the elements of race discrimination under Title VII?”
Clicking the suggest query takes you immediately to the most relevant responsive text.
The case has been assigned to a judge you know nothing about. Get data-driven insights to determine how often the judge handles these cases and how he might rule. With Litigation Analytics on Westlaw Edge, instantly pull up basic biographic information on the judge, as well as a preview of analytics around motion rulings, outcomes, and more.
Switch from Overview to Outcomes to go deeper into outcome analytics. Use “Search within results” to narrow the results to cases where “title vii” appears.
Still in Litigation Analytics, select Motions and narrow in on just motions to dismiss for cases where "title vii" appears. Go further by linking into related documents.
With an entire topic in Practical Law for Motions, easily find exactly what you need to draft and file a motion to dismiss, including a standard document and practice notes.
