LexisNexis Announces Lexis Advance for Associates

Lexis Advance for Associates is specifically designed for the hundreds of thousands of newer lawyers whose research needs are different from partners, according to Bob Romeo, chief executive officer of Research and Litigation Solutions at LexisNexis. “We know those who routinely conduct legal research want new innovations to help them build their expertise to become even more valuable to their organizations, so they are more efficient and better organized.”

Lexis Advance for Associates is aimed at serving primary users of online legal research - regardless of age -- such as associates at law firms and staff attorneys at corporations and in government. Cleverly, the search features resemble Google and Amazon search methods, which newer lawyers have grown up with.

An intuitive single search interface eliminates the need to select sources before searching and cuts out multiple steps in the search process. It also offers users the control to find relevant search results faster and more confidently with pre- and post- search filters. Furthermore, work folders allow for easy storage and access to previous work.  

There is no extra charge for the new research system.  Any firm with an existing LexisNexis account can use it if they wish to.

The innovations include:

  • Integrated results from LexisNexis® and the open Web: Allows users to search the open Web via Lexis® Web along with premium LexisNexis content simultaneously in a single step, efficiently delivering a single set of search results organized by content type. 
  • Legal Issue Trail: Uses LexisNexis intelligence to find and cite connections between cases that may not be obvious - ensuring that research is complete.
  • Transactional Notices: To help ensure transparency, users are notified on screen if they are about to access content that is outside of their subscription.

Lexis Advance for Associates also includes valued content used most by associates, including:

  • Comprehensive and fully enhanced primary law from all states – all available LexisNexis case law (Federal and State), including all LexisNexis headnotes and case summaries. All available statutes and constitutions (Federal and State) from all 50 states and US territories – including administrative codes, and agency materials.
  • News – top titles from the most comprehensive collection of news sources in the industry.
  • Shepard’s® Citations Service – the LexisNexis exclusive citator allows associates to quickly check if a case is good law.
  • Matthew Bender® – a wide range of industry-leading treatises and expert legal analysis.
  • LexisNexis jury verdicts, briefs, pleadings and motions.
  • LexisNexis® CourtLink® content: Includes the full collection of dockets.
  • Expert witness transcripts, depositions, and curricula vitae.

Scheduled for release later this year, Lexis Advance for Associates is the latest in a series of innovative solutions for legal professionals from LexisNexis. Other recently launched solutions include Lexis for Microsoft Office and LexisNexis® Verdict & Settlement Analyzer in summer 2010, Lexis Advance for Solos and its application for iPhone® in fall 2010, and LexisNexis® Profile Suite and LexisNexis® Firm Manager™ in February 2011.
