Summer and Extended Access

Lexis Advance grants you unlimited summer access for all purposes, including any summer job you may have at a private law firm. Just sign in as usual and start researching. If you are a graduating 3L, you automatically have access to Lexis Advance for six months following graduation with your present student ID. Additionally, if you are a graduating 3L going into public interest law Lexis Advance will provide you continued access for 12 months through its ASPIRE program. To be eligible for ASPIRE, a graduate must be engaged in verifiable 501(c)(3) public interest work, and must document that employment. The documentation can be a letter confirming your start date on the organization's letterhead. If you qualify, you will receive an ID and password for ASPIRE access to Lexis Advance services within a few weeks of graduation.

Westlaw permits the continued use of your student account during the summer for summer classes, work as a research assistant, on a moot court team, in a clinic, non-profit work, or an externship sponsored by the Law School. No commercial use is permitted. 

Graduating 3Ls and LLMs - The Law Library has negotiated access to Westlaw and Practical Law for 18 months following graduation. In order to get this extended access, click into a pop-up that appears when you log into www.lawschool.westlaw.com and when you agree to enter the program, you're set!
