Gathering cases with cites

I am often asked what is the cheapest and fastest way to get a bunch of cases when you know the citations. Here is a tip for when you have more than three cases to gather.
  1. Sign on to WeC (link is at the right for convenience)
  2. Click on the Cases search template
  3. Choose the Terms and Connectors search link on the top right of the screen
  4. Use the Search Fields to type in your multiple cites as phrases.
  5. WeC usually indexes alternate cites in this field so you will get most of the cases with one $10 search and then you can print or save at will.
  6. Note: you will have to remove the & sign that is automatically inserted when you select a field
