So... uhh... do you get anything for getting them? Or are they there just to... be there?

I think you get a few points for some of them, but not many. And Westlaw points are borderline worthless compared to Lexis points.

That's what it seemed like. It's a shame, because they have a lot more rewards. It's just that they cost the same amount of points for an item (or about the same) and you have to work a lot more to get the points.

Protip: Lexis is not good and has great rewards. WestlawNext is great and has no-good rewards.

Go to the Lexis events on campus for free food / points, but only feel like you need to use it to get a hang on the basics.
