Information About

Proximity searching: Search terms within the same sentence or same paragraph

You can make your search results more precise by searching for materials in which your search terms appear close to one another (instead of, for example, as a phrase). This is called "proximity searching." Westlaw gives you several ways to search by proximity.

If you want your search terms to appear in the same sentence, separate the terms with "/s". If you want the terms to appear in the same paragraph, separate them with "/p".
