Westlaw Training

The Texas State Law Library hosts Westlaw training sessions the third Wednesday of each month from noon to 1 pm. These training sessions are conducted by a Westlaw representative, and each session qualifies for 1 hour of continuing legal education (CLE) credit. These sessions are free and open to the public, but they are limited to 15 participants. We send out an e-mail announcement every month as a reminder; to receive these announcements, please sign up for our mailing list. The class schedule for the next few months and descriptions for each training are available below.

To reserve a spot, contact us at library@sll.texas.gov or at (512) 463-1722.
Please note that we only accept registrations during the week prior to the class date.

If you are unable to attend our training sessions in person, Westlaw also provides online training for many topics including Westlaw Classic and Westlaw Next. These trainings are free but are not eligible for CLE credit.
