Summer Access to Westlaw, LexisNexis, and Bloomberg



Continuing Students

In order to have full summer access to Westlaw, continuing students need to extend your passwords. 


Summer password extension is available only if a student has a permissible academic use for the password this summer such as:

  • School-related work or for school credit
  •  Law review and journal, including write-on competitions
  • Moot court
  •  Research assistant positions
  • Unpaid internships / externship

If you do not extend your password you will be limited to 20 total hours of use during the summer (10 hours in June and 10 hours in July).


Graduating Students

Graduating students may extend access while studying for the bar by registering for Grad Elite program.  Registered students will retain Westlaw access for 60 hours through November 30th 2015. 

If you have questions about Westlaw summer access, please contact our Westlaw representative, Holly Rush.


No registration for summer access is required if you already have a registered Lexis Advance ID.

Continuing students will have unlimited access to all legal and news contents to be used for ALL purposes this summer– including work they perform at a law firm, corporation or government agency.  


Graduating Students may register for one of Lexis’s Graduate Program IDs that will extend your access beyond graduation. To learn more, visit the Lexis Law School Graduate Program, all graduating students can apply for free extended access to Lexis Advance through the end of December 2015. 


Graduates conducting verifiable 501(c)(3) public interest work may sign up for the Lexis ASPIRE Program, which will permit job-related access to Lexis Advance for the duration of the public interest work, even if beyond December.

For questions and assistance, please contact our LexisNexis representative, Meredith Shuman.


All registered students will have unlimited Bloomberg access during summer. Graduating students will have unlimited and unrestricted Bloomberg access for 6 months following graduation. If you have questions about Bloomberg Law summer access, please contact Jed Lewin, BL representative.
