More Must-Have Content

Access more than 1.4 million state trial court orders

You won’t find more state trial court orders through any other online provider. The Lexis Advance® service now offers coverage in 45 states (all except Alaska, Hawaii, Nebraska, North Dakota and Wyoming) plus the Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia.*

Use trial court orders to gauge how a court of original jurisdiction treats recurring issues or matters of first impression. On the Lexis Advance home page, choose the Cases tab in Explore Content, click All Trial Court Orders and enter a search. Or search your issue in a specific state and filter your results to state trial court orders.

*Most state trial court orders date from 2000 forward.

Get insights on bill sponsors, plus see members’ committee assignments, staffs and contact information (phone number, email and website) to help you reach out to legislators. Just select the Legislator Profile link.

See state voting records for current bills

More Search Power

Zero in on more relevant facts, more easily

Here’s what’s new:

  • Lexis Advance recognizes the % command as equivalent to AND NOT, e.g., RICO % Puerto, in search requests
  • The Red Search Box now truncates long document title suggestions, enhancing readability

Easier Results Review

Get to the best results documents in fewer steps

Fine tune your results with more international filtering options. The Jurisdiction filter (applicable to certain content categories—like statutes) now permits further refinement of your results by international, regional and country values and shows you the number of documents for each value.

Now begin Search Within Results with a search connector. For example, ENTER: AND clawback or claw back in the search box available in the left results pane to narrow your results.

Finding and using good law gets even easier with these Shepard’s® Citations Service enhancements.

  • See how many references cite a specific headnote before you Shepardize®. The Shepardize – Narrow by this headnote links in full-text cases now display the number of citing references related to that headnote. You can see before you click through.
  • Use the new Title View in Shepard’s report results to view and deliver a streamlined report of references without text excerpts and pinpoint pages.
  • Navigate faster to citing passages—and search terms—in citing documents. When you display a Shepard’s citing reference in full text, a Navigate all terms box lets you navigate through multiple references to your Shepardized case, and now, among your initial search terms.

  • Shepard’s® BriefCheck now conveniently de-duplicates table of cases entries.

Enhanced Integrated Tools

Lexis® Securities Mosaic® enhances SEC Filings research experience

Coming late November—Users can conduct SEC Filings research more easily with an enhanced user interface. No search capabilities have been lost, but users will gain new tools, like a library of more than 130 predefined search templates and an unprecedented ability to refine results. Here’s a preview of the enhancements.

Proof documents even faster with Lexis® for Microsoft Office®

The name has changed, but the proofing tools are even better. Still powered by Microsystems, the former EagleEye proofreading tools at Lexis for Microsoft Office are now called Contract Companion. Contract Companion features a streamlined review pane and requires fewer steps to review a document even faster. Plus, get a legal health check of the document with the Summary feature for fast and comprehensive review—at no extra charge. Learn more, or contact your LexisNexis account representative.
