Keep Your Lexis and Westlaw Passwords Active this Summer
These are the summer password policies for Lexis and Westlaw.

Lexis: Any student enrolled in a summer class, on law review or moot court, or acting as a research assistant for a faculty member is eligible to register for summer access.  Other students have summer access to career materials only.  Graduating students are not eligible for summer access.

Eligible students can register for summer access at  Lexis recommends that graduating students who want to do some online research go to, the free internet research site.

Westlaw: Students graduating this year are allowed to register for two hours of free Westlaw access at  This is the program entitled "Before the Bar".  Note that students MUST register for this access prior to graduation; otherwise the student will receive job-search access only.

Students who are returning to Chicago-Kent next Fall have unlimited access this summer to all databases they may normally access during the school year.  These students do not need to register for this access because it is provided automatically.

Students are reminded that Westlaw law school passwords may not be used for research for law firms, government agencies, internship, externship, public interest,
pro-bono or other purposes unrelated to law school coursework.
