Westlaw & the Federal Register

In this 30-minute training session Westlaw's Sarah Hornbeck will cover how to access the Federal Register: 

  • Including current and historical versions going back to 1936 and
  • Create alerts so you will automatically be notified via email of proposed rules of interest
  • Cover a number of ways to search the CFR by title and topic, access prior versions of the CFR, and
  • Use KeyCite to quickly link to proposed rules in the Federal Register which may affect the validity of the regulation if a final rule is adopted.

If you have a more in-depth question on the Federal Register or any other Westlaw topic, Sarah will be available for an hour after the presentation.

Books of the Month!



In the tradition of the great business narratives of our time, Gigged offers deeply-sourced, up-close-and-personal accounts of our new economy. Kessler wades through the hype and hyperbole to tackle the big questions: What does the future of work look like? Will the millennial generation do as well as their parents? How can we all find meaningful, well-paid work?

The Myth of Capitalism

The Myth of Capitalism

The Myth of Capitalism is the story of industrial concentration, but it matters to everyone, because the stakes could not be higher. It tackles the big questions of: why is the US becoming a more unequal society, why is economic growth anemic despite trillions of dollars of federal debt and money printing, why the number of start-ups has declined, and why are workers losing out.
