Graduate & Summer Research Access: Summer Research Access

Summer Research Access

Dear rising 2Ls & 3Ls: Congratulations on completing the school year! The Law Library hopes you have a great summer and invites you to contact us with any research questions you may have in your summer work or studies.

You will also continue to have access to Westlaw, Lexis, & Bloomberg Law; see details below.

Westlaw Summer Access

You can use Westlaw over the summer for non-commercial research. You can turn to this resource to gain understanding and build confidence in your research, but you cannot use it in situations where you are billing a client. Examples of permissible uses for your academic password include the following:

· Summer coursework

· Research assistant assignments

· Law Review or Journal research

· Moot Coot research

· Clinical work

· Externship sponsored by school

You do not have to do anything to gain access over the summer.

If you have any questions, please contact your Thomson Reuters Academic Account Manager, Jeff Brandimarte.

Lexis+ Summer Access Program

Students will automatically have free, unlimited use of their law school Lexis+ ID this summer. This includes workplace related research, though students should check with their employer. Many firms prefer summer associates use a firm issued Lexis+ ID. No registration required for summer access; students sign in as usual.

If you have any questions, please contact your Lexis Research Attorney, Courtney Gregor.

Bloomberg Law Summer Access

You have access to Bloomberg Law throughout the summer.

E-mail help@bloomberglaw.com with any questions.
