How can I limit the amount of subscription content available when I'm searching or browsing?
Use Practice Areas (command is at top of Browse panel or in the top right menu commands) to create up to 20 Practice Area Profiles with customizable content. Then you can switch between Practice Area Profiles as needed. Save content used frequently into My Favorites so that it is available regardless of which Practice Area Profile is in use.
How should I format a search when I'm looking for a proper name, say in a case title?
When searching for proper names, use NEAR3 as connector to force terms to occur within 3 words of each other. Proper names, such as the names of appellants or judges, or the names of buildings and landmarks, often appear inconsistently in the law. For example, some jurisdictions use middle initials in reference to judges, whereas others use the judges' full names. To cover the range of options, use the 'near' connector when searching for names.
Type: william near3 johnson to find 'william' within 3 terms of 'johnson' and locate occurrences such as "William P. Johnson," "William Paul Johnson," "Johnson, William P.,"
If a jurisdiction used, just the first and middle initials, for example, W. P. Johnson, then Type: W near3 P near3 Johnson.
To combine the two above searches, Type: (William or W) near3 (Paul or P) near3 Johnson
The NEAR connector can also be a shortcut when looking for multiple names in a case name. For example, the case, Texas Teachers Assn. v. Garland School Dist., can be retrieved by searching in case name for: teachers near garland.
