Summer Access - Lexis and Westlaw

Now that finals are almost over, you're ready for the summer. One last thing before you go: make sure you still have access to Westlaw and Lexis!

1Ls and 2Ls The folks at Lexis are doing big upgrades over the summer, so you may have limited access to the original during this time. If there's something you can't get on Lexis Advance, check with Chris.

Lexis Advance - This year, Lexis has automatically extended your Advance account during the entire summer. 1Ls can use their access for their externships. New this year: 2Ls can use Advance for their summer jobs.

Westlaw- Students who do not extend their access will have limited hours on both Westlaw Classic and WestlawNext. 1Ls doing externships can extend their password by clicking on the "box ad" after logging in to 2L students who are working for a professor or on law review can also extend their passwords via the same method. 2L students working for a firm are not eligible to extend their passwords.

Class of 2013 - As mentioned above, graduates will have very limited access to (the original service).

Lexis Advance - Graduates will have full access to Lexis Advance until July 31, 2013.

Westlaw- Graduates will have 5 hours of access on Westlaw and 5 hours of access on WestlawNext for June and July.
