Summer Database Access for Continuing Students

Access to Lexis+ will continue during the summer.  As long as you are registered for Lexis+ you do not have to do anything to continue using Lexis+ this summer.  You may use Lexis+ for work or school during the summer.  In the fall, usage reverts back to academic use only.

You can use Thomson Reuters products, including Westlaw® and Practical Law over the summer for non-commercial research. You can turn to these resources to gain understanding and build confidence in your research skills, but you cannot use them in situations where you are billing a client. Examples of permissible uses for your academic password include the following:

Summer coursework
Research assistant assignments
Law Review or Journal research
Moot Court research
Non-Profit work
Clinical work
Externship sponsored by the school

You do not have to do anything to gain access to these tools over the summer. If you have any questions, please contact our Thomson Reuters Academic Account Manager Peter Lippmann at

Bloomberg Law

Access to Bloomberg Law continues over the summer.  You may use your Bloomberg Law password for any purpose during the summer as well as year-round.  The court dockets and transactional resources may be particularly useful to those working at law firms over the summer. Be aware of the per-person limits of 15,000 pages for dockets.
