Summer and post-graduate access to Lexis, Westlaw and Bloomberg law

Student access to various legal research databases over the summer may be limited.  To maintain access, please review the following information:

BLOOMBERG LAW

Bloomberg Law allows unlimited use over the summer.  For May graduates, if you sign up for Bloomberg by the end of April, you will be given access for six months after you graduate, until November.  If you have not signed up for Bloomberg Law, you can get instructions on how to do so by contacting Melissa Strickland at mstrickland@charlestonlaw.edu.

LEXIS ADVANCE

Lexis Advance is also allowing unlimited access. If you don’t remember your Lexis Advance ID, contact Carmela Orsini at carmela.orsini@lexisnexis.com.  If you’re not signed up for Lexis Advance, you can get instructions on how to do so by contacting Melissa Strickland at mstrickland@charlestonlaw.edu.

May graduates will be given the same access through December 31, 2014, but you must go to http://www.lexisnexis.com/grad-access/ and fill out the form there.  If you have any questions contact Carmela Orsini at carmela.orsini@lexisnexis.com.
