Digital Access / Create an Account - Law Databases


This guide provides information about registering academic accounts for members of the Emory University School of Law School community. Some databases and news sources require the user to set up their own individual account, and this guide explains the process step-by-step for each resource. 

Lexis or Westlaw accounts, however, must be set up by a Law Librarian. If you need a Lexis or Westlaw account, please submit a request using the Faculty Request or Student Request forms on the right side of the guide.
