Legal Research & Practical Guidance
Build your strategic advantage.

How can you develop timely insight that leads to decisive action? Use LexisNexis® tools and resources to find and validate case law and statutes, get up to speed in specific legal practice areas, learn from leading practitioners through treatises and online communities, stay current, make sense of disconnected data points and pull it all together for smart, strategic decisions.

Find & verify primary law

How can you build your strategy on sound law? A first step is to find the most relevant case law and codes for your jurisdiction and legal practice areas. Headnotes and case summaries can help save you time and help you develop insight—as long as you know they are written using editorial discipline.  And by using a proven resource for validating cases and statutes, you can be truly confident in your work. Plus, if you’re working in transactional law, you can save time by viewing the most relevant cases and codes identified by leading practitioners.

Focus on practice areas & jurisdictions

Whether you’re looking for case law, statutes, treatises, public records or guidance from leading practitioners, it helps to focus on the jurisdictions and practice areas most relevant to your work. LexisNexis offers content organized for all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., the federal government, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, as well as more than 40 areas of practice. Plus, specialized tools help you build insight in practice areas like intellectual property and medical malpractice.

Consult top authors & practitioners

How can you develop specialized insight—especially in rapidly evolving and less familiar areas of law? Even experienced attorneys consult treatises by leading authors frequently cited by the courts. Deep perspective comes from law reviews, journals, analysis of emerging issues, newsletters, blogs, litigation documents and more. Transactional attorneys can also benefit from legal practice tools, analysis and guidance.
