Did you know you can search the FirstPoint classification titles to locate relevant caselaw on a specific topic? The TOC search allows you to find a topic within the classification and if required further refine the results to find cases on point.
Note: It is important to note that the Table of Contents Search does not search the case summaries contained within FirstPoint only the headings and subheadings in classification of the table of contents.
To Conduct a FirstPoint Classification Search
Step 1: Browse the Table of Contents to locate FirstPoint, then click the TOC Search icon located to the left of the product name.
Step 2: Type in your search terms into the TOC Search menu option and click Filter e.g. Copyright
The results display a list of digest classification headings and subheadings where the term “copyright” appears.

Or to refine a TOC search place a tick next to the selected headings – then click Refine Search.
Step 4: If I want to find cases within the intellectual property>copyright>ownership of copyright classification related to “joint authors”.
Enter joint authors into the Free Text box, and click Search.
Step 5: The results will list cases from that section of the product featuring your search terms – joint authors.
