According to the Westlaw account manager, 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.
To acquire access to these tools, you need do nothing.
Remember: it cannot be used when a client is billed.
Access for May 2017 graduates is different and will be separately announced.
