The LexisNexis ASPIRE (Associates Serving Public Interests Research) program allows qualified graduates to access a specified menu of LexisNexis services during the deferral period.
What does that mean for you?
On August 1, your Lexis and Westlaw passwords will no longer allow you to access either database remotely. You can still use them by coming to the library, but not from your home, office or beach vacation. The “deferral period” exists between August 1 and the date you are able to start your associate position. Through ASPIRE, you may be able to access Lexis for free during the deferral period.
Now you ask: How do I qualify for this offer?
To be eligible for LexisNexis access via ASPIRE, you must have accepted an Associate position at a law firm, but are 1) experiencing a deferred fall 2009 start date, and 2) be taking on public interest work during your deferral period.
If qualified, you may register at www.lexisnexis.com/aspire to acquire access. Upon confirmation of your eligibility and commencement of your public service, Lexis will allow you to continue using your law school student ID to access a robust menu of materials to support your research at no cost. Be assured that you will not be able to access any materials that would generate additional, unwanted charges.
For additional information, please contact any of the CSL reference librarians.
