Lexis and Westlaw

Attention 1L students. You should know by now that you must register your Westlaw password for access to TWEN and Westlaw; and your Lexis activation code for access to LexisNexis and Web Courses. You will be using both of these systems and should register as soon as possible.

Westlaw has a demo that takes you through the process step-by-step.

LexisNexis has a FAQ that you should look at before registering your activation code. It has good guidance on creating your custom ID and password.

You should also hold onto your password/activation code. If for some reason you forget your Sign On information, you can be helped more quickly if you have these.

Of course you may also stop by the Reference Desk for assistance.
