Law Library Student Services Guide: Law Library Access Policies

Access to Electronic Resources

In addition to complete access to the Law Library's and University Library's electronic databases, all Law School students have access to Bloomberg Law, LexisNexis, and Westlaw databases. Bloomberg Law, LexisNexis, and Westlaw each require a unique vendor-issued password separate from your University login. To get more information on obtaining access you should contact the individual database representatives.

 

Bloomberg Law: Haley Harris (hharris@bna.com)

LexisNexis: Shannon McDermott (shannon.mcdermott@lexisnexis.com)

Westlaw: Tami Carson (tami.carson@thomsonreuters.com)

 

Please remember that you are not permitted to use your Loyola-issued Lexis and Westlaw passwords for work-related projects; they are for educational purposes only. You may, however, use your Loyola-issued Bloomberg Law password for any purpose, academic or commercial.

Student Access to the Law Library

Student Access

Current Loyola University Chicago students must present a valid university issued ID card at the entrance of the library to gain access.  Law School students may use their IDs to gain access of the 4th and 5th floors of the library.  All law and paralegal students should obtain a law/paralegal school validation sticker from the circulation desk. 

Guest Access

Current Loyola University Chicago School of Law students may accompany a limited number of guests to the library. This policy allows Loyola Law patrons to bring a guest to the library for collaborative study, and is not designed to accommodate visitor use of library collections or equipment.  All guests must be personally accompanied by a host student at all times. The host student must present his/her valid Loyola University Chicago ID card and the guest must present a government issued photo ID and sign in at the entrance of the library to gain access. 

Student Access to Other LUC Libraries

Loyola Law students are entitled to use any of the other Loyola Libraries.  One of these libraries may be closer to home.
