West Hornbooks

West now calls some of its hornbooks "Practitioner Treatises." To search for a hornbook on a specific topic, use both hornbook and practitioner in a key word search with a word describing the topic of the hornbook you are seeking. 

For example, a search for a criminal law hornbook would look like this: 

hornbook or practitioner and crim* 

This search retrieves records with the words: hornbook, practitioner(s) and criminal, etc.
