Lexis Advance, Westlaw, and TWEN
- 1Ls can use the Getting Started page in the LRAW textbook as a guide for how to register their Lexis Advance and Westlaw accounts.
- The password for the LRAW textbook is given to 1Ls at the law library orientation. Students can contact the librarian at the reference desk in the law library for a reminder.
- 1Ls use their Westlaw account to access TWEN and sign up for their LRAW section. The Getting Started page in the LRAW textbook has a video showing how to add a course in TWEN.
- To resolve lost password or other login problems for Lexis, contact customer service 1-800-543-6862 or the Lexis representative for our school.
- For Westlaw password help, call 1-800-934-9378 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Legal Research, Analysis, and Writing (LRAW)
- First-week assignments for LRAW, as well as all other classes are at http://first.uofsclaw.org.
- 1Ls complete the Legal System Pre-Class Exercise by clicking on their research professor’s name, then answering the questions in one session. (Saving answers and returning to finish later is not possible; however, referring to the online textbook is allowed.)
