Westlaw Provides 50 State Surveys Feature
The 50 State Surveys feature in westlaw.com gives you an alternative to piecemeal online searches (or even more laborious manual research) for comparable statutes in other states. Now you can retrieve a single document comparing your statute section to related statutes from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. And many of the survey documents also have an attached PDF file containing an easy-to-read chart with the topic broken down, column by column, into subtopics, and every state's treatment of that subtopic.
To retrieve a 50 State Surveys document while viewing a statute, simply click 50 State Surveys on the Links tab under Statutes. Some statute sections may retrieve links to two or more survey documents, depending on the subject matter of the section. If there isn't a survey document available for a statute section, the 50 State Surveys link will not be displayed in that section.
