Graduating students will have access to Bloomberg Law for six months after graduation. Register for a Bloomberg Law password if you don't have one already.

Lexis Advance

Graduating students will have access Lexis Advance to help study for the bar until June 30, 2016. Your Lexis Advance law school ID’s will be phased into a graduate ID on July 01, 2015, giving you free, unlimited access to Lexis Advance through December 31, 2016. You may use your Lexis Graduate ID to help find a job, prepare for interviews, and conduct legal research both professionally and personally. You will lose any points when you ID becomes a Grad ID.
