This guide contains registration tips for the Lexis, Westlaw and Bloomberg Law legal research databases, as well as vendor-provided materials and information about training sessions as they become available.
This guide is intended for Harvard Law School students only. Faculty, staff and other Harvard affiliates should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Introductory and ongoing vendor training sessions will be posted here and on our Research Training Calendar as they become available. Click on the links there, or under "Upcoming Events" below, to sign up.
At this time, no sessions will take place on the HLS campus. All sessions will be conducted online.
NOTE: Training sessions may be geared toward a particular group (such as 1Ls) or focus on a particular topic, but anyone (LLMs, Transfers, etc) may attend.
