Westlaw Printing No Longer Free

In Read This on July 18, 2013 at 7:05 pm

As you prepare for the academic year, please note that Westlaw printing is no longer free.

Westlaw notified customers last year that the ability to print for free would change; as of July 2013 this option is gone. Students can still print material from Westlaw at Nebraska Law but will need to print and pay for the material with your law school student printing account.

The former “Westlaw” printers in the printer room are no longer affiliated with Westlaw (they were donated to the law school) as the company is no longer providing free printing.
