Summer and Post-Graduation Use of Bloomberg Law, LexisNexis and Westlaw

Student access to Bloomberg Law, Lexis Advance and Westlaw is governed by our academic subscription plans.  Under these plans, your passwords to these services may be deactivated or limited in use beginning June 1, 2015.


  • Bloomberg Law and Lexis Advance offer students unlimited access over the summer, for any purpose.


  • Westlaw access is limited to 40 hours during the months of June and July, unless you are using it for academic pursuits (e.g. summer school, internships, research fellowships). To get unlimited academic use during the summer, you must apply for an extension on Westlaw’s website.

FOR GRADUATING STUDENTS:  All of these services offer extensions of up to 6 months to help you prepare for the bar, conduct your job search, or become a more proficient searcher.  But you must apply for these extensions, using the services’ websites.
