Coronavirus Response: Remote Access to Resources

Off-Campus Access

All of our electronic databases are available from off-campus to Lewis and Clark Law School students, faculty, and staff.

Start with our A-Z Databases list or a research guide, select the database you want to access, and enter your L&C email username and password. Also, be sure to look at our guides to Online Casebooks and the Bluebook and on access to pretty much every Legal Study Aid currently being published.

If you have any problems logging in from off-campus, please contact us

Free Resources During COVID-19

Your public library remains an excellent source for e-books and audiobooks as well. (If you do not have a library card, please contact your local public library directly. They may be able to help you set up a card remotely.) If you have any questions about this list or other resources, please contact a librarian.
