Please read below for details on accessing Westlaw, Lexis, and Bloomberg Law over the summer.
Rising 2Ls and 3Ls: At the end of June, academic passwords for returning students will default to 40 hours for the month of July, even if a student does nothing to extend.
Westlaw does allow returning students to extend their current, unlimited access in specific instances, which you can do by going to http://lawschool.westlaw.com/registration/SummerExtension.aspx. Allowable usages for extending include:
- Summer law school classes and study abroad programs
- Law review or law journal work, including write-on competitions
- Research assistant work
- Moot court
- Unpaid, nonprofit public-interest internship/externship pro bono work required for graduation
Graduating 3Ls: Graduating students will have full access to Westlaw through June 30, 2016. Graduating students can also continue to use Westlaw through the Graduate Elite program. Graduating students should have received an email regarding this program and can locate information about the Graduate Elite program on the lawschool.westlaw.com homepage, or at https://lawschool.westlaw.com/registration/gradelite.aspx.
After completing a short survey, they receive Westlaw access: 60 hours for 6 months (June – Nov and it ends on Nov. 30th).
