Westlaw Printing Services are Discontinued

Please note, Westlaw no longer provides dedicated printers.  This means that when you are signed into Westlaw, you will no longer see the option to print from a Westlaw printer as in the example below:

There are several alternatives to printing that are available to law students using WestlawNext or Westlaw Classic. These include:

  • Emailing or downloading search results in PDF or Word format.

In Westlaw Classic, these options are available by opening a document and clicking on the relevant icons:

In WestlawNext, open a document and click on the Select a Delivery Method icon, then choose the email or print option:

  • Delivering results to your Kindle (WestlawNext only). To use this feature, access the text of a search result and click on the Select a Delivery Method icon. After clicking on the Kindle option, you’ll be prompted to enter your Kindle email address.

  • Saving results to research folders (WestlawNext only). To use this feature, select the Save to Folder icon:

You can then save to a pre-existing folder or create a new folder. Note that WestlawNext also enables you to highlight and add notes to your saved search results.

  • Routing results to the law library printers (or another attached printer). As always, the Pepperdine School of Law will continue to provide 500 pages of no additional cost printing to students per semester. The newest instructions to install these printers to your computer can be found here. www.tinyurl.com/PSOLPrint. Instructions on how send documents via your mobile device to the SOL printers can be found here www.tinyurl.com/PSOLMobile

  • Using the Lexis printers, which will continue to be available for free to students using Lexis Advance.

If you have questions about the document delivery, saving, or organizing features in either Westlaw Classic or WestlawNext, please contact a reference librarian.


Westlaw (https://lawschool.westlaw.com): Similar to Lexis-Nexis, Westlaw is one of the leading Internet-based legal research providers.  Westlaw has two versions including their basic Westlaw version and a new, advanced Westlaw Next interface.
