Update on Westlaw Standalone Printer Removals

After I posted yesterday about Westlaw removing standalone printers from the Puerto Rico law schools, I received an e-mail from Southern New England School of Law. This is a standalone law school which is not yet fully accredited by the A.B.A. They were told in March that Westlaw would be removing their standalone printers. When the associate director there asked why, the academic rep had no explanation and could only say that West was "redeploying resources." Again, it looks as though Westlaw is picking at the low hanging fruit when redeploying resources. They seem more comfortable on the mainland grabbing resources from the unaccredited law schools. Hardly the high road.
