Westlaw Password Summer Extension

Your Westlaw password may be used for academic purposes only. If you are not graduating this summer and are taking law classes or participating in a qualified program, you will have to extend your Westlaw password to keep it active.  If you do not qualify for an extension, you will still have 40 hours available on Westlaw and WestlawNext in the months of June and July. You may use these 40 hours to improve your research skills and complete online trainings.

Here are the programs that qualify extending your Westlaw password for the summer:

  • Summer law school classes
  • Law review work
  • Project for professor
  • Moot Court
  • Unpaid non-profit public interest internship/externship or pro bono work required for graduation.

Using your academic Westlaw password for commercial purposes is not permitted.  Commercial purposes is defined by Westlaw as “research conducted for a law firm, corporation or other entity (unrelated to law school) that is paying you to conduct said research or that is passing along the costs of said research to a third party.”
