Now every case search can become a chart of connected, relevant cases

Use the new Ravel™ View at Lexis Advance® to quickly discover how the top cases in your search results are connected, uncover cases that might otherwise be overlooked, find seminal cases and discern citing trends across jurisdictions and over time. This integrated analytical view is available only at the Lexis Advance service, giving you more value for every case search at no additional charge.

Try it! Just enter a case-law search in Lexis Advance and select the Ravel View icon to see a graphical depiction of the top 75 results from your search.

Each circle represents one case. Each line connecting cases indicates a citing relationship. At a glance, you can see how seminal a case is (size of a circle), when it was decided (horizontal timeline), jurisdiction where it was decided (vertical level axis) and how relevant the decision is to your search (how high the circle appears within a jurisdiction section).

When you click a case circle, the case name and cite display above the circle. Plus, colored lines

show you Shepard’s® treatment for citing cases. (See graphic below).

Then hover over a citing case circle to view the point of law discussed. To deselect a case circle and go back to the full Ravel View for your search, click anywhere in the background.
