We’ve just launched our new Westlaw UK certification training modules – available now, online, wherever you are. 

Westlaw UK Certification Training gives you an interactive walk-through of Westlaw UK with the option to then test your skills and become Certified.

First, we’ll take you step-by-step through everything you need to know to be a Westlaw UK power user. If you decide to take the test and pass, you’ll be Certified in Westlaw UK and be sent a certificate in the post to demonstrate your skills, which you can list on your CV.

Please note: You must complete Basic before attempting Advanced. The modules may take a few minutes to load and require Adobe Flash. For support, please email the Westlaw UK Training Team.


Westlaw UK Basic Certification provides an introduction to Westlaw UK covering effective searching, refining results and using status icons to ensure you are using ‘good’ law.


Once you’ve completed Basic Certification, you can move onto Advanced, covering Boolean search connectors, Judicial consideration of case law, legislative modifications and derivation tables, EU and other advanced topics.

    How do we receive a certificate in the post?

      Hi Mike, once you complete the module and pass the test, you’ll have the chance to enter your details and a certificate will be delivered to the address you enter within 6 weeks.

      Hi Jessica, We can’t find any fault – please could you try it again and let us know which page is giving you the error and which browser you’re using?

    This is a fantastic idea, especially for those who already work within legal information services and want to add to our credentials. Well done Westlaw!

  6. Aedryan Chklar says:

    This is all well and good. But are the certificates actually posted?

  7. Aedryan Chklar says:

    So, I would advise anyone considering doing this not to bother. The certificates are never sent.
