Explains the purpose of Restatements, the drafting process, and the availability in the Chastek Library.

Restatements Available on Lexis Advance

All series of the Restatements are available on Lexis Advance.  You can browse the Restatement tables of contents, keyword search, or retrieve a Restatement citation by entering the citation in the red box in Lexis Advance.  The Restatement rules (along with comments, illustrations, and notes) are searchable in separate sources from case citations on Lexis Advance. This makes searching for relevant rules very efficient on Lexis Advance. Case citations are linked from individual rules. The Restatement drafts are in separate sources from final versions of Restatements.

Lexis Advance is available to anyone with a current account.
