Assign, Track & Assess Student Research Skills with Lexis® Learn

Lexis® Learn is an interactive learning platform to supplement your current research curriculum. It's designed to help students learn legal research fundamentals outside of class so you can focus on in-depth content in class.

 How will Lexis® Learn enrich my class?

  • Relevant- video tutorials cover first year core legal research skills
  • Research skills focused- skills learned can be applied to any research system
  • Engaging- interactive design fosters learning and appeals to millennials.
  • Flexible- assign any or all video modules to students for completion outside of class freeing up class time for deeper instruction.
  • Track & Assess- a powerful Dashboard includes detailed analytics to track completions and evaluate students’ understanding of core research skills.

Students don't just watch. They learn.

20+ modules are available now. Each module incorporates video, animation, and questions throughout to keep students engaged. Questions surface throughout each module and require the student to apply what they learned and perform research to find the answer. This reinforcement and application process ensures students have a solid understanding of the material. Lexis+ populates live below each module so students can conveniently repeat what was learned and find the correct answers.
