September 18, 2019

Online shopping is pretty amazing. How else can you buy a waffle iron, jumper cables and an iguana leash in the comfort of your pajamas?

Well, now online shopping is even better. In-house counsel and lawyers in one- to two-attorney firms can enjoy that same convenience when buying the Lexis®, Lexis+®* and Lexis+® General Counsel Suite† services online. Insight, convenience and efficiency are at your fingertips. It’s a smart way for in-house counsel, solos and small law firms to supercharge their legal research—with the sweatpants-clad bliss that comes with online shopping.

How Much Does Lexis Cost?

Whether you're a solo practitioner, a dual-attorney firm or in-house counsel, the price of a Lexis, Lexis+ or Lexis+ General Counsel Suite subscription depends a lot on the content needs of your law practice. The package price is determined by the number of users, as well as the type of content needed. Through the Lexis, Lexis Plus and Lexis+ General Counsel Suite services, you get access to the massive online LexisNexis® legal library—but there’s bound to be a lot of material that won’t be relevant to your specific legal practice. That’s why LexisNexis representatives worked hard to create packages based on the core content and pricing needs of most corporate attorney teams and solo and two-attorney firms.

 

What is Included in Lexis?

There’s a lot of information within the LexisNexis online legal database—and what’s relevant to a personal injury attorney may not be relevant to a lawyer in a real estate practice. So LexisNexis curates content based on an individual firm’s needs and budget. (That way, you won’t be charged for something you’re not using.)

If you want to buy Lexis or Lexis Plus online, you’ll need to be a new customer in a one- to two-attorney firm, and select from a few pre-assembled packages:

  1. State Primary
  2. State Enhanced with Full Federal
  3. National Primary Enhanced

All three packages include access to state cases, statutes and legislation, along with Shepard’s® Citations Service. But the State Enhanced with Full Federal and National Primary Enhanced packages kick it up a notch by adding more content, like federal cases and core law journals. You can see the full breakdown of what’s inside each package here.

Corporate legal teams can select from these three options:

  1. General Counsel Suite, Essentials
  2. General Counsel Suite, Premium
  3. General Counsel Suite, Premium International

 Each Lexis+ General Counsel Suite package includes primary law, practical guidance from 20 practice areas, treatises, legal and breaking news and CLE trainings. The Premium and International Premium options include authoritative analysis, content from previous legal disputes and insight on judges, attorneys and witnesses regarding issues of first impression. As the name implies, the International Premium package also includes cases and statutes from around the world. 

 It's worth mentioning again that each of these packages is customizable. You can treat them as starting points and work directly with a LexisNexis representative to create something with the content (and price) that works best for the type of legal work you do.

 And since they’re available online, you can amp up your legal resources to a new level while sipping your morning coffee—or taking your iguana for a walk.
