Continuing students can extend their passwords for use over the summer for academic purposes only. These purposes include: summer law school classes, law review & journal work, projects for a professor, moot court, and unpaid non-profit public interest internship/externship (or pro bono) work required for graduation. Non-permissible uses include any work for a law firm or other for-profit employer. To extend your password, go to https://lawschool.westlaw.com/registration/summerextension.aspx.
For new graduates, Westlaw has a Grad Elite program which extends access for academic and bar examination preparation purposes through November 30, 2015. New graduates will need to fill out the Grad Survey to extend their access, and the extension has an overall cap of 60 hours of use through the end of November. To register, log in at lawschool.westlaw.com and select the appropriate extension banner.
