    Westlaw Passwords

    All students enrolled in the Post-Baccalaureate Paralegal Certificate Program, or who have declared a Legal Studies or an American Law and Legal Studies (3/3 program) major, may be given a Westlaw password for educational use while attending Hamline University.

    To receive your Westlaw password, you must have:

    • Enrolled in the Post-baccalaureate Paralegal Program or declared a Legal Studies or an American Law and Legal Studies (3/3 program) major; and
    • Completed Legal Research and Writing, LGST 1250.

    We cannot guarantee access to all students, but will provide on an as-available and as-needed basis. Students seeking Westlaw access should direct their questions to Professor Stephen Arnott at sarnott01@hamline.edu 

    Password Use

    Students who receive a Westlaw password from the Legal Studies Department must only use the password for educational purposes. In other words, students may use the password to perform legal research or retrieve materials for use in an academic course or honors project at Hamline University, but may not use the password to access materials for any internship or paid employment outside of Hamline University.
