Continuing Students

Continuing students automatically get full access year-round to Westlaw, Lexis+, Bloomberg Law, and other databases. No further registration required for summer access.

Westlaw

Summer access is available for 1Ls and 2Ls for the following purposes:

  • Law Review and Journal Work
  • Unpaid internship/externship or pro bono work required for graduation.

Students cannot use their passwords for work as a Summer Associate in a law firm or corporation or work in a Government entity or in any circumstance they are paid or receive a stipend.

Lexis+

Lexis has announced that your law school Lexis+ ID will remain active during the summer (June, July and August) and that you will have unlimited access to the content available to you in law school to be used for your academic, as well as any summer associate or internship/clerkship purposes. Keep in mind, however, that employers may have specific instructions for workplace related research, and so check with your employer first. You simply need to be registered for Lexis+.

If you aren’t a registered Lexis+ user yet (or aren’t sure), contact Nadjia Bailey  (nadjia.bailey@lexisnexis.com)
