Welcome First Years!

On behalf of the Library Staff, welcome to C|M|LAW and the C|M|LAW library!  We are glad you made the decision to attend Cleveland Marshall College of Law, and we look forward to meeting you and helping you throughout the year.  Please take advantage of our library’s services and resources.  They include:

WestlawNext is Here!

You now have access to Westlaw’s next generation research system, Westlaw Next.  The library as well as our Westlaw rep will offer training on the new system.

How to Access: Sign into Westlaw.  Once signed in, in the top blue bar,  you will see a link for WestlawNext in between links for Westlaw and TWEN.  Click on the link for Westlaw Next.


When you print from WestlawNext it will not print to the Westlaw student or faculty printers.  You can print to a stand alone printer.  If you are printing in the computer lab, these pages will print to the lab printer and be charged against your 1,000 page allotment.


  • Cut and paste citations into regular Westlaw,
  • Coming soon, there will be a box from the Westlaw Law School screen where you can type citations
  • Go to Click on Onepass Username and Password at the bottom of the screen. Log in with your Onepass Username and Password.  Enter citations to print with a semicolon or hard return after each citation.

How is WestlawNext different?

  • The all-in-one search box at the top of the screen will search everything on WestlawNext at once.   You do not have to select a specific database to search.
  • Once you do a search there are filters on the left hand side to narrow the results by type of document, date, additional search terms or court
  • The search is performed using a souped-up natural language search known as a WestSearch.  WestSearch leverages the key number system, keycite, citations to documents in secondary sources and prior search patterns of judges, attorneys and legal scholars. (more…)
