Law Library Databases

The law library subscribes to over 35 specialized legal research databases. All databases are available on campus (you must be connected to CUALAW-Wireless to use databases on your laptop). Westlaw, Lexis, Bloomberg, and CALI require an individual password. Contact a reference librarian if you need a password.

Off-campus access is available using your last name and law library barcode (located on the back of your CUA I.D.).
