Congrats, graduates!

For the graduating 3Ls, Commencement literally and figuratively caps your hard work and determination over the past three years. Commencement is both nostalgic and exciting. It is the transition moment from your life as a student to your life as a professional.

Although you will be transitioning to the next phase of your career, please remember that the law library is always here to be of service. In the short term, we have information on our website about post-graduation access to some of our subscription databases.

RWU Law GraduatesGraduates have until June 30, 2017 to redeem their LexisNexis Rewards points. You will receive an email reminding you. Also, on July 1st your view of the Lexis Law School Home Page will switch from your current view to the graduate view. This new view will provide career and job search info and you will be awarded 10,000 Graduate Rewards points that can be redeemed for LexisNexis eBooks and online subscriptions for Lexis Practice Advisor, Lexis for Microsoft Office, and Law360. 

For those students who have received the graduation emails from Lexis but have changed their graduation dates, please contact our Lexis Representative, Steve Albro, at Steven.Albro@lexisnexis.com.

Finally, Lexis has the ASPIRE program which provides 12 months of free access to federal and state cases, codes, regulations, law reviews, Shepard's, and Matthew Bender treatises to graduates who are engaged in verifiable 501(c)(3) public interest work.

Information about other alumni access privileges, including the HeinOnline Law Journal Library, can be found on the library’s RWU Law Alumni Services page.

Always remember that the librarians are here to provide reference assistance even when you are in practice and not in class.

Good Luck! Congrats! We will miss you!
