A video explaining how West creates headnotes and editorial enhancements for cases

Have you ever wondered where those Westlaw headnotes come from?  If you think it's a bunch of little elves in a hollow tree then you need to check out this video showing how it's really done. Since this is the time of year when 1L's are learning how to do legal research, you might find this video an especially helpful teaching tool that explains in real time how West creates all the editorial enhancements that lawyers depend on.

It's a pretty effective way to help students better understand digest topics and the key numbering system. Enjoy!
