Alumni Services

This guide describes services for CUA Law Alumni.

Access to Research Databases

CUA law alumni can access most of the law library's research databases from the dedicated law alumni desktop in Room 227 and from the public-access desktop in the lobby and in Room 330. Due to licensing restrictions, Westlaw, Lexis Advance, and Bloomberg Law are not available to alumni. Graduates may access these three databases for a short time immediately after graduation (see "Recent Graduates" below).
