TTU Law Library is committed to providing resources to support our summer associates and graduates as you take the next step in your legal career.
Continuing students will automatically have access to Westlaw over the summer for unpaid, non-commercial research, and no special registration is required. Permissible uses include:
- Summer coursework
- Research assistant assignments
- Law Review or Journal research
- Moot Court research
- Non-Profit work
- Clinical work
- Internship/Externship sponsored by the school
If continuing students are working for a firm or a for-profit organization, you should use the Westlaw account provided by your employer.
Graduating students can register for Westlaw’s Westlaw Grad Elite program. Westlaw’s Graduate Elite Program provides up to 60 hours of unpaid, non-commercial usage of Westlaw per month through November 30, 2023. In addition, you get access to job searching databases on Westlaw and TWEN for 18-months after graduation for 1 hour a month.
Continuing students will have unlimited Lexis +access this summer for any purpose at school or at work, including any paid or unpaid legal work, though employers may prefer summer associates use a firm-provided ID for client work.
Graduating 3Ls will automatically have continued access to Lexis upon graduation. The Graduate Program gives extended access to Lexis+ to spring graduates via our law school IDs through December 31, 2022. The transition from a regular law school ID to a graduate ID happens on July 10, 2022.
The ASPIRE program provides 12 months of free access to federal and state cases, codes, regulations, law reviews, Shepard’s® Citation Service and Matthew Bender® treatises to graduates who are engaged in verifiable 501(c)(3) public interest work. Graduates who apply to this program must work directly for a non-profit or charitable organization, and be able to provide documentation (e.g. email) from a superior of the same.
Continuing students will have full access to Bloomberg Law over the summer. May 2022 graduating law students will have 6 months post-graduation unlimited and unrestricted access to Bloomberg Law.
If you have access issues to those databases, please contact the Electronic & Digital Services Librarian, Dajiang Nie, at email@example.com.
