I prefer Lexis 99% of the time. Westlaw Next did find a case for me right on point for my job this week that I would have never found otherwise... but overall, Lexis's interface is so much better and Shepherdizing>>>>>Keycite.

I greatly prefer WL, but I find that accumulating rewards points is easier with LN.

Talked to a teacher who does firm work, and asked why westlaw next isn't the only thing going right now... apparently it costs many times more than westlaw classic, and no firm has the money to use it yet.
