Law Library Databases
BYU Law School alumni have remote access to two electronic resources through the Law Library: HeinOnline’s Law Journal Library and the LexisNexis Digital Library.
HeinOnline Alumni Access: Alumni can access HeinOnline’s extensive library of over 2,800 law journals. Use the HeinOnline Alumni Access link at the bottom of the Law Library’s home page under “Helpful Links” and log in with your NetID and password.
LexisNexis Digital Library Attorney Access: Alumni and members of the Utah Bar can sign up for an account to checkout e-book versions of legal treatises and volumes of the Utah Code Annotated. For more information and a complete list of titles, go to https://lawlibrary.byu.edu/information/digital-library-attorney-access/.
All attorneys who have bar membership in the United States have free access to Fastcase. Check your bar association’s website for details.
The Law Library has two computer terminals near the reference desk with public Westlaw access. They are available for use by anyone when the library is open to the public. Researchers must limit their sessions to 30 minutes when someone else is waiting. You are welcome to return to the library to use the terminals.
Graduates are always welcome to contact Reference Services or law librarians with research questions! Contact information is available at https://lawlibrary.byu.edu/information/ask-a-librarian/.
