First Year Students: Register Your Lexis & Westlaw Passwords

Every first year student who attended a Library tour during First Week received
a LexisNexis activation code and a Westlaw password contract. 
You must use these documents to create your Lexis and Westlaw passwords,
which you’ll be using for the rest of your law school career.  The codes
in these documents are time-sensitive; if you do not register your passwords
within the next two weeks, the codes will expire!

You must have  both a Lexis and a Westlaw password registered in order to
participate in your upcoming mandatory Computer Assisted Legal Research
training session.  Thus you should register both passwords right away!

To register your passwords, follow the simple instructions on these Webpages:

For Lexis:

For Westlaw:

If you’ve misplaced your registration documents, or you have any difficulty
with the registration process, please contact the Library Reference Desk at

If you did not attend a Library tour, you will need to attend a makeup tour to
get your registration documents.  Makeup tour dates will be announced
