Have you heard the news?
Lexis Advance will be available all summer for students engaged in the following pursuits:
• Summer course preparation and assignments

• Research associated with pursuing a grant or scholarship
• Service as a paid or unpaid research assistant to a professor

If you need any help in registering, stop by the Reference Desk in the Library or contact our Lexis Representative, Carmela Orsini at email@example.com or 678-646-8721. See the Policy on Use of LexisNexis Law School Educational IDs for more information.
UPDATE: Students may also register for Lexis.com (Lexis Classic) for summer access for the same academic reasons as Advance.

**“Academic purposes” do not include research conducted for a law firm, corporation, or other entity (other than a professor or law school) that is paying you to conduct research, or that is passing along the cost of research you conduct to a third party. These are deemed “commercial purposes.” LexisNexis is committed to ensuring that its educational IDs are used by authorized users for legitimate purposes. To ensure that the highest standards of consumer privacy and data security are met, LexisNexis regularly monitors search activity and reviews usage patterns. There can be consequences when inappropriate searches are performed.
