LexisNexis Usage Policies

Summer Access terms:  LexisNexis is available to all UNH Law students once classes end for the semester/academic year, for the summer months of May, June, July, and August. LexisNexis believes your participation in a summer associate, internship, or clerkship program is a valuable part of your legal education. Your law school IDs can be used for any purpose over the summer, but students should check with their employers first. Some employers would rather students use their firm IDs rather than their law school IDs for billing purposes.   

School year terms: Except as related to the Summer Access program as described above, “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 the student to conduct said research or that is passing along the costs of said research to a third party. These are deemed “commercial purposes”.

Students and faculty using their LexisNexis legal education IDs for commercial purposes  (defined above) risk forfeiture of their ID; unless the use occurs during the prescribed period of Summer Access for law students. 


Graduates may continue to access Lexis with their Lexis student ID, through December 31, 2024 All law students have automatically extended access. There is no need to register, there are no restrictions, and no limits on your research time.
