For those graduating, here are the access policies for Lexis, Westlaw and Bloomberg Law:
Lexis Advance - Graduating students can register for a new ID that will be
provided via email in early July. This new ID will be active until December 31,
2013 for educational, bar review and job search purposes only. This
is not an extension of your law school ID – this is a new ID for
which graduates (and graduating LLMs) must apply. Students cannot use this ID for commercial purposes. Lexis has emailed graduating students details on the program. You can register at http://www.lexisnexis.com/grad-access/ .
Westlaw - Graduates who extend their password get 5 hours for June and 5 hours for July. To extend your password log into Westlaw and click on "Need Your Westlaw Password This Summer" (on the right). You will have access to Westlaw's job searching databases until May 2014.
Bloomberg Law - You will have access for 6 months after graduation. Go to Bloomberg Law registration to set up an account if you do not already have one. Make sure to use your Hofstra email address.
As always, feel free to contact your favorite reference librarian at (516) 463-5908 if you have any questions.
Best of luck on all exams.
