Westlaw/Lexis summer access at the firm

Postby Anonymous User » Tue May 15, 2012 3:29 am

Are biglaw SAs required to use the firm's Westlaw/Lexis accounts? Or can they use their own student accounts?

Pretty sure if you're getting paid, you can't use your student account

If the firm gives you a Westlaw account and does not wink when doing so, use the firm account for everything firm related.

If the firm doesn't give you one or tells you to use your school or winks when they give you a firm, then decide if you want to take the risk of being caught stealing Westlaw services.
