Quick Guide to the Law Library

This guide provides resources to help new CWRU Law students get started with Law School and become more familiar with the Law Library.

Frequently Used Databases



Several commercial online legal databases provide authorized users with individual IDs and passwords. 

Access to Westlaw, Bloobeg Law and Lexis Advance is restricted to the following: 


  • CWRU Law students, faculty, staff and librarians
  • CWRU students who are enrolled in a course that is cross-listed in the School of Law (when the instructor determines that access is necessary)


If you fall under one of the categories listed above and would like to gain access to the database or are having problems accessing a database, contact the Law Library at
