A very sad day for legal research
Yes, it's official. The university at which I completed my LLM has finally suspended my IT account meaning I've lost access to the plethora of precious legal databases which all law students are groomed to fall in love with. It’s just as well I got that paper written before the end of last month, eh, and spent the past few weeks downloading just about everything from Lexis’ Forms and Precedents that I think I’ll need for the future.
Just kidding. Or am I? ;-)
Actually, I'm surprised it's taken them this long to deactivate it. The uni I was at during my undergrad years, suspended accounts with the eagerness of an overzealous guillotine operator from the French Revolution. I found this out to my detriment whilst studying abroad on the ERASMUS scheme!
As we’d got to March, I was beginning to hope they might leave me 'on their books' until the next cohort were enrolled in September. Obviously my luck didn’t hold. A very sad day indeed. :-(
