Law Library Statement: 

Access to the Law Library's Licensed Resources

The Law Library provides password-based access to Bloomberg Law, Lexis Advance, and Westlaw to all currently enrolled BC Law students. In addition to the resources on these platforms, faculty may assign materials from the hundreds of licensed databases offered by the Law Library's license agreements. These resources include scholarly articles as well as historic documents, artworks and films. Our license agreements allow you to post links to these sites rather than the actual items on your Canvas course website. Please contact your legal research librarian liaison or write to for assistance.
