The electronic resource, Matthew Bender.com, will no longer be available according to the site’s publisher.  Instead Matthew Bender titles can be found in either Lexis Advance (Browse Sources) or Lexis.com (Secondary Legal.)

Practical Law is coming to WestlawNext.  What is it?  Practical Law offers the legal practitioner “…Practice Notes, Standard Documents, Standard Clauses, and Checklists…” to assist with client services and research.

Enjoy the holiday break!
