If you are an incoming first year student, the reference librarians and the entire library staff look forward to meeting you in August.
You should have received in the mail an envelope from the BLS Admissions Office which includes your Lexis activation code and your Westlaw password. Lexis and Westlaw are the two major legal databases that you will have access to as law students. There will be many other databases available to you as BLS students, but more about those when you get here!
Please make sure you register your Lexis activation code and your Westlaw password before school begins. The registration instructions were included in the mailing you received, as well as some basic information about both systems. You will be introduced to Lexis and Westlaw by your legal writing instructors, but the reference librarians will give you a “peek” at both systems during your orientation sessions.
If you are an incoming first year student and did not get your Lexis and Westlaw numbers in the mail for some reason, please stop by the first floor library reference desk and we will assist you. See you soon!
