You still have access to these great databases for some time after graduation!
Lexis+ IDs: Spring graduates have access to Lexis+ via their law school IDs through December 31, 2022, except for public records. This ID also grants access to the Graduate Home Page (detailed below).
LexisNexis Rewards Point Expiration: Like previous years, spring graduates have until June 30, 2022 to redeem their LexisNexis Rewards points.
Graduate Home Page: On July 10, 2022, the spring graduates’ view of the Law School Home Page will switch from their current view to the graduate view. This new view will provide helpful information for their careers and job search. Grads will also be able to select a “Graduate Gift.”
Aspire Program: Graduates conducting verifiable 501(c)(3) public interest work may sign up for the Lexis ASPIRE Program for extended access to some items. Please contact our Lexis Account Representative, Jennifer Durkin, at email@example.com, if you have any questions.
You have access to Thomson Reuters products, including Westlaw and Practical Law, for six-months after graduation. Your “Grad Elite” access gives you 60-hours of usage on these products per month to gain understanding and build confidence in your research skills. While you cannot use it in situations where you are billing a client, Thomson Reuters encourages you to use these tools to build your knowledge of the law and prepare for your bar exam.
In addition, you get access to Knowledge Center eLearnings and Tutorials on Westlaw for 18-months after graduation. Once you know what your plans are, or if you need a refresher, don’t forget to use the Knowledge Center eLearnings to becoming a pro at research!
