Summer Access to Westlaw, Lexis, and Bloomberg

If you’re a current student and need access to the major research services this summer, here’s a breakdown of how you can use them:

  • Westlaw Next – You may extend your access through the summer by following the procedure here. If you do not complete that procedure your access to Westlaw will automatically be reduced to just two hours per month for the rest of the summer. As you’ll see, you may only use Westlaw through the summer for certain purposes, including law journal work and certain non-profit jobs.
  • Lexis Advance – As long as you’ve already registered for Lexis Advance, you may continue to log in and use it for any purpose, including work, throughout the summer. The same goes for Lexis Nexis.
  • Bloomberg Law – You may continue to access Bloomberg Law throughout the summer for any purpose, including work.

If you have any questions on this matter, please contact pjohnso@jmls.edu.
