The spirit of giving seems to spread throughout the world this time of year. Many of us are more inclined during the holiday season to pause, take note of all that we have to be thankful for, and how we can help others or support causes important to us.
At LexisNexis®, we are getting in on this spirit of giving as well. One of the ways that we like to participate is by making available a wide range of information resources to legal professionals for free — and invite you to leverage these resources in ways that make the world a better place.
Here are 12 of our favorite things, courtesy of LexisNexis and RELX Group, our parent company:
