West's Analysis of American Law is a complete guide to the West Key Number System, which organizes American case law into more than 400 main topics and over 100,000 individual lines. The Key Number System provides the framework for West's American Digest System, serving as an index to individual points of law contained in all reported American cases. The Analysis also contains scope notes and cross-references.
Each line in the Key Number System represents a distinct legal idea, and can be used with Westlaw, West Books, and West CD-ROM Libraries to pinpoint cases and other legal materials dealing with that legal issue.
