New Zealand Legal Writing Index

Westlaw NZ also contains the New Zealand Legal Writing Index, which covers many of the major law reviews and journals published in New Zealand from the mid-1950s onwards. References provide details of articles, although a small number may also include a link to the full text article if it's available in Westlaw NZ.

The NZLWI can be accessed from the Journals link on Westlaw NZ's home page. Then drill down through the product titles to New Zealand Legal Writing Index. Searching the NZLWI is the same process as shown in the video above, though as its only an index it would be wise to use fairly broad terms.
