We are excited to announce that Thomson Reuters is offering our patrons FREE Westlaw accounts. This temporary account will provide you with 20 hours of legal research between now and June 30, 2020. Your Westlaw account will allow you to access all federal and state Westlaw content, including secondary sources (like the Rutter Guides), Westlaw Edge, and litigation documents.

You can create your temporary account through our Legal Databases webpage. Please follow the instructions to register. And, please note, you cannot use a email address that was previously used for a Westlaw account. All of the temporary accounts will terminate either once your 20 hours of legal research are up, or on June 30, 2020, whichever comes first.

We are happy to add Westlaw to the list of legal databases that have FREE, remote access for our patrons. Lexis Advance and Fastcase are also offering limited access to their databases through our website, and Gale Legal Forms is offering remote access to our Benefit Package holders.  And, as always, Nolo offers free remote access to their forms, books, and articles for the people of San Diego County.

If you have any questions about how to access these resources, please contact us either by email or telephone, and we are happy to assist you with your legal research. Remember, our buildings my be close, but we are still here for you!
