Note: As of September, 2013: While most treatises available on WestlawNext and Lexis Advance are linked directly through our Portia online catalog by title, due to the changeover from classic Westlaw and Lexis interfaces to the WestlawNext and Lexis Advance products, there may be some gaps. We are working with catalog records vendors to correct this. In the meantime, and in addition, you may go directly to:
WestlawNext: Secondary sources > Texts and Treatises > Estate Planning: there are several good elder law treatises.
WestlawNext: State Materials > Massachusetts > Secondary Sources > Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education, Inc. Materials (MCLE) > topics include Estate Planning, Family Law, and Health Law.
WestlawNext: State Materials as above …> Massachusetts Practice Series > Massachusetts Practice Elder Law.
Lexis Advance: Browse Topics > topics include estate, gift and trust law; family law; healthcare.
Lexis Advance: Browse Sources > Narrow by ‘Secondary Materials’ and ‘Treatises’ and Jurisdiction ‘Massachusetts’, then browse list of MCLE’s.
Bloomberg Law: There are some treatises under Practice Centers > Books & Treatises.
Other general suggestions:
