Summer Research & Post-Graduation Access to Legal Databases: Home

2022 Summer Access and Graduate information

Rising 2Ls and 3Ls will have continued access to all LSU Law databases including Lexis, Westlaw, and Bloomberg Law.

Using Lexis this summer:

You may use Lexis without restrictions,even for work related research. Your firm may prefer you to use their Lexis ID for billing purposes.

Using Westlaw this summer:

You may use Westlaw for non-commercial purposes (i.e. if you aren't being paid for the research you are conducting). If you are working for a firm, you must use their Westlaw access. Your cap of 180 hours of use a month remains in effect. Remember to log out if you are not actively using Westlaw to search.

Using Bloomberg Law this summer:

You may use Bloomberg Law without restrictions. Your firm may prefer you to use their Bloomberg ID for billing purposes.

Other Law School databases:

You may use these without restriction. If you access the databases from off-campus, you will need to use the links found in the library's database list and log-in using your PAWS account information.
