Joe Mornin, a 3L at UC Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall), built Bestlaw, a free browser extension for Google Chrome that adds a bunch of useful features to WestlawNext:

  • Copy a perfect Bluebook citation with one click
  • Clean, readable view
  • Automatically-generated table of contents
  • Quick link to jump to footnotes
  • One-click copying for citations, titles, and full text
  • Collapse and expand statutory sections
  • Find the document on free sources like CourtListener, Cornell LII, Casetext, and Google Scholar
  • Prevent getting automatically signed off
  • Share the document by email or on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+

If you are a Westlaw user, I’d definitely give it a try.
