A link to the New York Times' website and a link to sign up for an individual account can both be found on the DCLI website.

Your individual account will be good for one year, at which time you will need to renew. (The system will allow you to set up an email calendar reminder if you like.) To renew, use the link provided above, but click on "Log In Here" rather than “Create Account.” After that, you should get a verification email. Click on the link in that email, and your account should be renewed for 364 days.

The Legal Intelligencer is a daily Philadelphia legal newspaper that includes coverage of the Pittsburgh legal market. It offers columns on legal issues, case analysis, and verdicts. Many practicing attorneys read the Legal Intelligencer. A link to the Legal Intelligencer's website can be found on the DCLI website  under "News Resources." 

The online version of the Legal Intelligencer provides the current week's worth of issues along with some archived columns from previous months. Older content may be found on Lexis Advance.

To use our online access to the Legal Intelligencer, please log in (at the upper right side of the screen) using your Lexis credentials. If you are logged in as an individual user, you can go to "My Accounts" to set up access to a variety of email newsletters, including Pa Law Weekly, Breaking News, and AM Update. Members of the law school community who do not have a Lexis account may contact Julie Tedjeske to set up an account.


Our subscription only provides access to the Legal Intelligencer, with very limited access to articles from other publications that are part of the network, many of which are provided on the same website as the Legal Intelligencer. You can access three free articles per month from the larger network before you hit a paywall. Please note, however, you can find much of this content by running a search in Lexis. Try searching in Lexis for the headline in quotes while limiting your search to  ”Legal News.”
