Next-Gen Lawyers Choose Lexis+®*

3 of 5 next-gen lawyers prefer Lexis+® based on an independent study by Ipsos™, a global market research and public opinion analyst firm, commissioned by LexisNexis®, to undertake data collection and aggregate results. The survey was sent to 40,000 U.S. law students at ABA accredited law schools nationwide, and 2,030 responses were collected.

49% more law students prefer Lexis+ to Westlaw®.

Why do law students prefer Lexis+? It’s primarily based on better data visualization, brief analysis and legal analytics tools. In fact, over 40% more law students rate data visualization and brief analysis tools as excellent on Lexis+.


In addition, law students prefer the Lexis+ interface, ease of use and Shepard’s® citations service.

What does this mean for you?

You should continue to see an increase in summer associates, first year associates, clerks and others coming into your organization with a strong familiarity of the Lexis+ platform. However, preferring a system does not mean they have exceptional research skills. Incoming associates will continue to need robust training on Lexis+ and other LexisNexis® tools to ensure they are conducting research in an efficient and effective manner in a practice environment.
