Does Cravath use Lexis or Westlaw?

Postby 2squared » Sun Mar 01, 2015 12:52 pm

I am doing a lot of legal research work in law school, and I figured it would be a good idea to use the same research engine that I will be using after law school. So, if anyone has summered there or works there now...

Thanks!

It uses both Lexis and Westlaw, like S&C, Wachtell, etc.

I'm sure they have contracts with both. Its the pricing scheme that you have to be aware of. For example, my firm initially had Westlaw charging per search, but not for keyciting or directly typing in and reading a case. While Lexis did not charge for searching but charged each time you clicked into a particular case. And then, out of nowhere, my firm got a deal with Lexis to eliminate the cost of searching, so now its just some fixed price contract, and we can do as much Lexis research as we want without incurring additional charges.

So its all about pricing structures. I used to always use Westlaw, but sort of had to switch to Lexis once that deal was in place.
