Make sure to get your Lewis & Clark Law School Alumni card from the Alumni office. The first time you check out materials as an Alum you will need to show your Alumni card and update your library record. Services do not include interlibrary loan or access to Summit borrowing.
The Library subscribes to several legal research databases which are free from on-campus. Among these is BarBooks, Fastcase, and the HeinOnline Law Journal Library.
