There is no easy way. You need to do a full text search for any articles that have cited that article.  



Launch the database, WestlawNext.

Click on ‘International Materials’ on the right side of the screen.

Click on World Journals on the right side of the screen.

Enter the article title as a phrase, eg. "Mistaken Identity in the House of Lords"

Make sure you use quotation marks.  This will ensure it is searched as a phrase.

There were 6 results.  One was the actual article and the other five were articles citing that article.


You can then repeat the same procedure in Lexis. There will be variations in the journal coverage between Lexis and Westlaw

In Lexis, you are going to have to search the Australian journals, the UK journals and the US journals separately. 

For instance to search UK journals, launch:  


Under the Legal column, click on Find Laws by Country or Region

Click on Foreign Laws & Legal Sources

Click on United Kingdom

Select Journals

Select UK Law Journals

Again enter the article title as a phrase.

As I said you will have to repeat these steps for the journals published in other countries.
