Bloomberg Law, LexisNexis and Westlaw all have summer access provisions and usage policies for continuing and graduating students. Read below for more information!
You may use your Westlaw account through the summer for noncommercial research, such as law school activities, research assistant assignments, work for a nonprofit, or in an unpaid internship.
Graduates can register for Westlaw’s Graduate Elite Program, which provides for six months of access after graduation. Graduates also have access to the Knowledge Center eLearnings and tutorials for 18 months after graduation.
In order to extend access you will need to opt into GRAD ELITE by logging into www.lawschool.tr.com. Use the drop-down menu by your name to go to GRAD ELITE Status or go directly to https://lawschool.westlaw.com/authentication/gradelite.
Lexis access continues through the summer with no restrictions on time or usage.
You will have access to Lexis until December 31, 2021 with no registration required, or restrictions. Use the same Lexis account log on credentials you used in law school. If you are working for a nonprofit organization, you may be able to extend your access even longer through the ASPIRE Program.
Bloomberg access continues through the summer subject to yearly individual Docket allowance.
2021 graduating students will have unrestricted access to Bloomberg Law for 6 months with no special registration required (if students register for Bloomberg Law access before graduation)
Other Library Databases
Returning students have full access to all of our databases, such as Hein and Proquest throughout the summer.
Alumni are always welcome to use the library and seek research help from the reference librarians. If you stay in the area as you begin your legal careers, remember that the majority of our electronic resources can be accessed by any patron from within the library (when open), including Westlaw.
