How to Find All of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Opinions in Westlaw

With the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recently, we decided to offer a legal research tip since some readers may be interested in reading her opinions.

In Westlaw, go to US Supreme Court cases and run these searches as advanced searches:

  • For rulings by Justice Ginsberg:

               adv: JU(ginsburg) 

  • For cases where Justice Ginsburg concurred:

               adv: CON(ginsburg +s concurring)

  • For cases where Justice Ginsberg dissented:

               adv: DIS(ginsburg +s dissenting) 

Users could also string all three together as one search.  

Later this week, similar info will be posted for Lexis+.
