PowerNotes: The only productivity tool built for legal research

PowerNotes is a tool to help you save, annotate, and organize sources you access from databases and the internet. You can annotate any website, save your highlights, and add notes to your highlights, organized by your topics and projects. PowerNotes works with Westlaw, Lexis, HeinOnline, Bloomberg, and many other popular legal databases. This is an effective way to keep all your work online in one place. Once ready to move to the next step in your research or writing, you can easily export your notes from PowerNotes to MS Word, Google Docs, Excel, or Google Sheets.

PowerNotes takes citations from Westlaw, Lexis, HeinOnline, and Bloomberg and copies them into your PowerNotes interface, so it can also help you with your citations. It isn’t perfect though, so remember to double-check that your citations comply with Bluebook, ALWD or other required formats.

You can learn more about how to use Powernotes for legal research, check out their helpful video guides here: https://www.powernotes.com/resources/videos (select “Law”)
