I just looked at the new westlaw for the first time today and I DO NOT LIKE IT. I want the old one back.

My favorite feature on Westlaw is the outline that breaks all the law in America into discrete collapsible categories and lets you find all the headnotes in a jurisdiction that have to do with your narrow category. I can't find it. Where is it? If it's gone, then I'm going to defect to Lexis.

Just under the search box there is a panel of tabs. The one all the way on the right is "tools." Click that. First thing you should see is the West Key Number System.
