Spring 2025 Study Abroad Info

International Exchange Program

Interested in possibly studying abroad for the next spring semester? Mark your calendars now for information coming out later this summer and early in the fall.

Decisions regarding participation in the International Exchange Program at the University of Comillas, the University of Copenhagen, and the University of Poitiers will be made by September 6, 2024. An interest meeting will be held on August 22, 2024, and interviews will be conducted by Professor Murray and Dean Fodor during the following week. Interested students are encouraged to sign-up over the summer for additional information that will be distributed via the Law School International Exchange MS Teams.

Please send an e-mail indicating your interest to sharon.hill@marquette.edu, and she will add you to the Law School International Exchange MS Teams Page.

Summer and Post-grad Bloomberg Law, Lexis, and Westlaw Access

Continuing students: You will have automatic, unrestricted access to your Bloomberg Law and Lexis accounts this summer. There is no need to register, and you do not need to limit your use of these two accounts to academic purposes during May through August. (You must limit use of your Lexis account to academic purposes during the regular academic school year.) You will also have access to your Westlaw account this summer, including Practical Law, but you must continue to limit any use of that academic Westlaw account to non-commercial purposes. Non-commercial purposes include coursework, Research Assistant assignments, law review or journal work, moot court research, unpaid non-profit public interest work, clinical work for credit, and internships/externships for credit through the law school. Do not use this account in situations when you are billing a client. You can also continue to use other databases, such as Fastcase and HeinOnline, as you would during the fall and spring semesters. 

Graduating students: Your access to Bloomberg Law, Lexis, and Westlaw is tied to the graduation date in your account profiles for each system. Your unrestricted Bloomberg Law access continues for six months after you graduate. Unrestricted access to Lexis continues through December 2024, with an automatic transition to a graduate ID on July 1. Though not automatic, you can opt-in to extend your Westlaw access to continue for several months after graduation. Please make sure you opt-in if you anticipate wanting to take advantage of that access. Watch for an email to your @marquette.edu account in late May or early June from the law library with additional information.  

All: Employers or organizations with which you work, volunteer, or intern might require or prefer that you use firm/organization accounts rather than database access through your academic account. Please understand and comply with relevant practices and policies. Importantly, you must not share your Marquette-affiliated account credentials or access with anyone, including classmates or colleagues at work who have their own accounts. 

Do you have questions about access to resources or working with these and other databases? Reference assistance and research consultations are available to you throughout the summer and beyond. Just stop at the Reference Desk or contact a reference librarian to get started. We're happy to help!
