Find a Source
Quickly locate sources of interest via the Find a Source tab in Explore Content. Search for a specific source or use the alphabetical listing to locate sources of interest. (Note, this is an in-plan option for commercial customers.) The same filters are available, i.e. see all sources in a specific jurisdiction. Other options include getting all available documents for the source, adding one or multiple sources as search filters, and creating a publication alert.
Find a Topic
Use the LexisNexis® online digest system to find cases that address a legal topic, issue or point of law. Select the overall practice area topic and expand subtopics. You can also search for a specific topic in the search box provided. Once a topic is selected, Lexis Advance will process the search and retrieve cases related to the topic. Set up a topic alert to receive new documents from the content types you select.
Easily access Practice Centers under Content Type in Explore Content. They are also accessible in the State and Practice Area or Industry tabs.
Lexis Advance post-search filters have been enhanced, including an intuitive and flexible hierarchical style, allowing users to easily select multiple filters from one screen and drill down to specific courts more efficiently.
Access India Case Law and Statutes from over 90 sources. Go to Explore Content > International > India
