Use Westlaw Next and save the cases you think are worthwhile.

Agreed. In Westlaw Next you can create folders and subfolders and save sources to those folders. (Click on "Folders" in the upper right corner.) I've found this to be the most efficient way to do research. You can organize sources by cases, journals, etc. Then within those folders you can organize by the position the source takes or otherwise. It works.

Here to echo Westlaw folders. You can also highlight and take notes on there. I've yet to print off any case for a memo or brief. It's good to cast a wide net and find cases generally talking about what you are looking for and then save them. Later you can wade through and mark up the good ones and delete the ones that aren't useful.
