Westlaw Reward Points: The New International Currency

Thanks to Westlaw and their “reward points” system, I am the proud owner of a brand new Panasonic cordless phone. The phone is worth a whopping $129, the most expensive phone I’ve ever owned. What makes it so good? Hell if I know.
For those that don’t know, Westlaw and Lexis are competing legal database systems that allow you to look up cases and other law-related materials. They both cost a fortune to use, but are free for law students. To encourage our addiction, they offer “rewards” for logging in often. I’ve logged in every day for a year.
