Find the case and the page you need—instantly

Document automatically displayed at the cited pageQ: If I know the exactly page number in the case I need during a Westlaw ( session, I can type the page number in the Find service and see that page first. For example, if I am interested in page 685 of Buckley v. Valeo, 96 S.Ct. 612 (1976), I can simply type 96 sct 685 and be taken directly to page 685. (This is a huge timesaver with Buckley, which is more than 150 pages long!) Why can't it work that way on WestlawNext?

A: You'll be happy to know that you can now use a pinpoint citation and be taken to that specific page on WestlawNext, too. For example, type fi: 96 sct 685 in the search box on the WestlawNext home page. Page 685 of the Buckley case is displayed, with the beginning of page 685 indicated with a green arrow.
