Bloomberg, Lexis, and Westlaw Summer 2018 Access for Returning Students

Bloomberg Law

There are no restrictions on using Bloomberg Law, and there are no extra registration steps required.  Continue as you have!

Lexis

There are no restrictions on using Lexis, and there are no extra registration steps required.  Continue as you have!

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, and
  • Externships sponsored by the School.

To acquire access to these tools, you need do nothing.

Summer access to Bloomberg, Lexis, and Westlaw for May 2018 graduates is different and is separately announced here.

One additional note on Lexis and Westlaw access. Please check that your graduation dates in Lexis Advance and Westlaw are correct. If not, contact Marisa Henthorn at mhenthorn@charlestonlaw.edu.
