Externs, Summers & RAs

Research tips and advice for law students working in a variety of legal settings.

Bloomberg Law, Lexis, and Westlaw in the Summer

Planning to use a UCI database over the Summer?

  • Bloomberg BNA & Lexis: access is unrestricted for academic accounts – you can even use your account if you’re at a firm*.
  • Westlaw:Non-academic use is prohibited and you need to sign up for “Summer Extension.” See:lawschool.westlaw.com/registration/summerextension.aspx.
  • Others (e.g. HeinOnline, Legislative Insight): log into the Law VPN first.*

* Always check on your employer's policies for tracking and billing research costs.
