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

Restatements Available on Lexis +

All series of the Restatements are available on Lexis +.  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 +.  The Restatement rules (along with comments, illustrations, and notes) are searchable in separate sources from case citations on Lexis +. This makes searching for relevant rules very efficient on Lexis +. Case citations are linked from individual rules. The Restatement drafts are in separate sources from final versions of Restatements.

Lexis+ is available to anyone with a current account.
