LEXIS & Westlaw
Students enrolled in any section of Legal Research and Writing will be assessed a fee for access to these services and receive their access information for both services via email within their second week of class.
Client ID or Client (applies to both LEXIS and Westlaw)
Both LEXIS and Westlaw have entry boxes for a Client ID (or just Client). The Client ID serves several purposes: it can be used to identify the session in your research trail or it can be used to track the research for a specific matter. Westlaw requires that you type at least one character in the Client ID box. This ID can be anything. You can enter an ID that is specific to your search or your can enter your initials. Any entry in the Client ID will not hinder your login. No entry will.
Any student having trouble with their LEXIS or Westlaw access should contact the Institute Office, 312-915-6820.
