What are the Most Popular Areas of Law Researched by Consumers?

On the LexisNexis Blog, Amy Kovar, a product marketing manager, posts about research determining the most popular areas of law sought by consumers.

Among adult Internet users in the U.S. who sought an attorney in the past year, the five most common legal matters sought were the following:Legal Matter Sought in the Past Year

  • Real Estate - 21%
  • Living Will - 17%
  • Estate Planning - 16%
  • Last Will & Testament - 16%
  • Power of Attorney - 15%

Interestingly, there were no meaningful differences in the practice area results between those who sought out their legal matter using an online resource and those who did not — the same five areas of practice were the most common regardless.
