Summer Resources

Summer information and resources for current students and recent graduates.


Current Students

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 directly billing a client. Examples of permissible uses for your academic password include the following but not limited to:

  • Summer coursework
  • Research assistant assignments
  • Law Review or Journal research
  • Moot Court research or any academic competition 
  • Non-Profit work
  • Clinical work
  • Externship/Internship sponsored by the school
  • Practicing your research skills

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

Lexis Nexis

Current Students

Students automatically receive access to Lexis+ with their law school IDs during the summer – May, June, and July. Students do not have to take any action to gain access. Their law school IDs can be used for any purpose over the summer, but students should check with their employers first. Some employers would rather students use their firm IDs rather than their law school IDs for billing purposes.

Recent Graduates

May 2021 graduates will continue to have access to Lexis+ (except for Public Records) through the end of the calendar year. Please redeem your LexisNexis Rewards Points by June 30.

Bloomberg Law

Current Students

Students are able to use BLAW in any capacity during the summer (work, academic, personal). For work, we suggest that you check with your employer to ensure that they don’t mind you using a student account. Some employers prefer that you set up an account with them.

Recent Graduates

Graduates will have access for 6 months after graduation.
