Your Westlaw password may be used for academic purposes only this summer. You will have 40 hours available on Westlaw and WestlawNext in the months of June and July. You may use the 40 hours to improve your research skills and complete online trainings. Additional access will be granted if you qualify for an extension. The following programs qualify for an extension for the summer:

  • Summer law school classes
  • Law review work
  • Project for professor
  • Moot Court
  • Unpaid non-profit public interest internship/externship or pro bono work required for graduation.

Here is the link to extend your Westlaw password for the summer. You will need to sign-in to Westlaw and then may register for a summer extension.

Using your student Westlaw or WestlawNext account for commercial purposes is not permitted. Commercial use includes research while employed at a law firm, governmental entity, corporation, or for an internship/externship that is paid and/or does not provide credit toward graduation.
