Laid out below are the respective usage policies for the three main legal databases:

Bloomberg Law:

  • Returning students have unrestricted access over the summer.
  • Graduating students will continue to have unrestricted access for 6 months after graduation.

If you haven’t already signed up for Bloomberg Law, there’s information on how to do so here.

Lexis Advance:

  • Returning students have unrestricted access over the summer.
  • Graduating students will continue to have unrestricted access through July 31, 2014.
  • Graduating students can also extend their access through December 31, 2014, right here.

If you have any questions about your Lexis account, you can contact Tarlton’s account representative, Jaclyn Olivas, at


  • Returning students may extend their access over the summer for academic purposes right here.
  • Returning students who do not extend their access will still have 40 hours of access each month over the summer (June and July).
