April Mobile App Recommendation

Are you traveling this spring to conferences or vacation spots and want to take your research on the road? As you may have guessed, there are myriad legal research apps to assist researchers on the go. While the library’s database of useful mobile apps for research, scholarship, and teaching contains many specialty resources, don’t forget that the venerable Westlaw and Lexis are available for mobile as well. Westlaw has free mobile apps for iOS and Android, while Lexis has iOS apps and a mobile site for non-iOS devices.

Apps Database

To review all other apps in the “research” category, go to the apps database, and click on the downward-facing triangle to the right of “Category” – select “Filter:”

 In the resulting menu, click on “Select All” (to deselect all categories) and click “Research.” Then click the “OK” button.

Apps Database

If you would like to recommend additions to the library’s mobile apps database, please contact Jill Smith, Instructional Technology Librarian, at jas515@law.georgetown.edu or 202-662-9165.
