Law School Graduate Program: LexisNexis offers a complimentary ID for use through December 31, 2014. This special ID is intended to help you study for the bar, conduct your job search and become more efficient in Lexis Advance® research.
The ASPIRE (Associates Serving Public Interest Research) program provides complimentary access to a LexisNexis menu consisting of federal and state case law, codes, regulations and law reviews to equip graduates with resources to effectively support their nonprofit and public interest work.  Graduates who apply to this program must work directly for a non-profit or charitable organization, and be able to provide documentation (e.g. email) from a superior of the same. Exclusions include government work (even if unpaid), work for a law firm (even if it represents a non-profit organization), and solo practice (even if it encompasses non-profit work). A 501(c)(3) organization is defined as one that is organized and operated exclusively for religious, charitable, scientific, testing for public safety, literary, or educational purposes. Graduates should receive a new Lexis Advance ID about a week after they submit the completed application. The Lexis Advance ID will provide access through Sept 1, 2015.
