Summer & Post-Grad Access: Lexis, Westlaw, and Bloomberg Law

Lexis +

USF Law 1L and 2L students will automatically have free unlimited use of their law school Lexis + accounts this summer. No registration is required--just sign in to Lexis as usual and start researching.

Students also have access to online tutorials on Lexis. The on-demand Prepare to Practice Resources include lessons on improving Lexis search skills and Practice-Ready Certification. The program includes 3 modules and an exam to test your knowledge related to researching unfamiliar topics, litigation and transactional drafting, and legal analytics. 

USF Law students graduating in May 2021 can continue accessing their Lexis academic accounts through December 31, 2021. All law students have automatic extended access. No registration is required, there are no restrictions, and no limits on your research time.

Westlaw Edge

Westlaw is giving all continuing law students (1Ls & 2Ls) full access to their academic Westlaw accounts over the summer.

For individuals graduating in May 2021, Westlaw will give continued access through November 30, 2021 if graduates register for this access. May 2021 graduates need to confirm that they want post-graduate access by clicking on the pop-up reminder to register for post-graduate access that appears when you log on to Westlaw. If you haven't seen this pop-up reminder and want to ensure access to Westlaw after graduation, contact USF's campus representative, Marc Fong, at MARC.FONG@thomsonreuters.com.

Bloomberg Law

Bloomberg Law is available to 1L & 2L students over the summer. It's also available to graduating students until November 30, 2021 if students register for Bloomberg Law access before graduation.
