UW Restricted

The Gallagher Law Library and the University of Washington Libraries subscribe to many commercial databases and indexes. Access to most of these databases is restricted to:

  • students who are currently enrolled in University of Washington degree programs and extension classes
  • faculty and staff of the University of Washington
  • researchers who visit one of the University of Washington Libraries, including the Gallagher Law Library.

Throughout this website, links to or descriptions of such databases are marked [UW Restricted].

The Gallagher Law Library provides UW Law faculty, students, and staff with IDs and passwords for using Bloomberg Law, Lexis, and Westlaw. Contracts with these vendors do not permit access by members of the UW community or the public who are not affiliated with UW Law. For more information, see Access to Bloomberg Law, Lexis Advance & WestlawNext. However, the UW Libraries provides access to a version of LexisNexis called Nexis Uni, through the UW Libraries Research Databases page.

Members of the public should contact librarians at your school, agency, business, or organization or at your local public library or county law library. You might have access to the same or a comparable source from another library. A list of county law libraries is available at Law Libraries in Washington State and the U.S
