Students may use their school Lexis Advance ID for school and job-related research, subject to the permission of their employer.

Westlaw Access Changes

Westlaw's decided it's time for the Next step!  Beginning July 1, 2014, Westlaw will no longer provide access to WestlawClassic for the law school community nationwide.  An announcement will be made on Tuesday, April 15th on the Westlaw main screen to notify users of this change.  Please note that we will maintain access to WestlawNext without any interruption.  So, if you'd like to say goodbye to Classic, you have until June 30th to do so.  If you have any questions, please feel free to come by the Reference Desk. Thanks!

Lexis Advance summer access continues


Lexis Advance will continue to permit law students and recent graduates to use their Lexis Advance ID for both school AND job related research this summer. Some employers do not allow summer associates to use their school Lexis Advance IDs, so check with your employer first.

Class of 2014 law graduates will have access to their school Lexis Advance ID until the end of August.
