Video on Westlaw Headnotes

The editors at West have produced a short (6 minute) video on the creation of West headnotes.  They demonstrate the entire process, from receiving an opinion from the court and initially loading the case to Westlaw, to the assignment of West topics and key numbers and the writing of the headnote summaries.  The creation of headnotes is done by real people at the West headquarters in Minnesota.
