Westlaw (Australia) Guide - Create and organise favourites

Last Published: January 16, 2020

Creating Favourites is a convenient way to store links to content you frequently search.

The following resource titles can be added to your favourites: Secondary sources, Key Numbers, Legislation titles, parts and sub-parts, The Laws of Australia, News and Current Awareness, Government and Regulatory Materials, Forms and Precedents.

Individual content, such as individual news articles, cases, sections of Legislation, and specific forms and precedents, should be added to a folder instead.
