Legal Research Database Access for Graduating Students – May 2015

We know for our all of our students, the end of finals is a major accomplishment. Hang in there – your last round of finals is almost complete.

If you are graduating from Touro Law School in May 2015, first, we must say: Congratulations! We know you are off and away to great things.

Second, did you know that you have continuing access to all the legal research benefits of Bloomberg Law, Lexis Advance and Westlaw Next for a period of time after you graduate? You actually do. Below are the rules and guidelines for 2015 post-graduate access to legal research databases:

Bloomberg Law:

Graduating students have full access to their Bloomberg Law accounts for six months after their graduation date. Your access is preserved automatically – no additional action is required. 

Lexis Advance:

Lexis Advance offers six months of access to their database after graduation. Your access is preserved automatically – no additional action is required. Graduates who obtain employment with a non-profit organization may be eligible for the Lexis ASPIRE access program. For more information about either program, please use the following link:


Westlaw offers a program called “Grad Elite.” After registering with the program, students are granted limited access to Westlaw for six months after graduation. To enroll in graduate elite, please use the following link:
