Westlaw

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.
