Lexis, Westlaw, and Bloomberg Summer Access

Lexis, Westlaw, and Bloomberg Summer Access

Want to use your Lexis, Westlaw, or Bloomberg password over the summer? Here are the details on how it works:

LEXIS
Sharpen your research skills this summer with access to Lexis Advance for academic purposes. If you’re already registered for Lexis Advance, you don’t need to do anything else to get Summer Access. If you haven’t registered yet, click here to register. If you’ve already registered your Lexis Advance ID, you don’t need to do anything else for Summer Access.

  • Educational Purposes includes:
  • Summer course preparation and assignments
  • Research associated with Moot Court, Law Review, or Law Journal
  • Research associated with pursuing a grant or scholarship
  • Services as a research assistant to a professor, whether paid or unpaid
  • An internship, externship, or clinic position for school credit or graduation requirement
  • Study for the bar exam
  • Research skill improvement for educational purposes

You will also have access to 24/7 customer support for help at 800-45-LEXIS. If you need access to international materials that are not yet available on Lexis Advance, you can request access to regular Lexis.

Students working in 501(c)(3) public interest organizations this summer are eligible for free access to LexisNexis with the ASPIRE program. You can apply for ASPIRE access now, or anytime throughout the summer. For eligible spring 2012 graduates, ASPIRE access may extend until September 2013. Get the details and apply for ASPIRE access.

If you have any questions about summer access to Lexis, please contact Karen Gray.

WESTLAW
Current students (rising 1Ls and 2Ls) may extend the access on their student Westlaw passwords for the summer if they are:

  • working on a paper or project for a law school course
  • current members of a law review or journal and working on projects for that publication
  • working for a law school professor
  • working on a project for a moot court, or
  • working in an unpaid, nonprofit public interest internship/externship.

Law school student passwords may not be used for government offices or agencies, law firms, corporations or other purposes unrelated to law school academic work.

To extend your password for summer access, click on the “Need Your Westlaw Password This Summer?” link on the lawschool.westlaw.com home page.  If you have any questions on the summer access extension, please contact Kimberly Kenneally.

BLOOMBERG LAW
If your workplace has a Bloomberg Law account, you are expected to use that, but there are no restrictions on your Bloomberg accounts over the summer. Need an account? Just sign up with your law school email address.
