Westlaw AU has added a Most Cited Filter which appears in the left-hand pane after a search is conducted across Cases.
The Most Cited Filter helps to find the cases that are deemed to be more important and/or have higher Precedent value.
Step 1: Enter keywords into the Basic Search and select Cases. Click Search.
Step 2: In the left-hand pane click on + next to Most Cited. This will expand the Most Cited filter.
In this example:
4 Cases have been cited 20 to 49 times
9 Cases have been cited 10 to 19 times
21 Cases have been cited 3 to 9 times
1246 Cases have been cited 0 to 2 times
Step 3: Check the box next to 20-49(4). This will display the four cases that have been cited between 20 to 49 times.
