That’s a difficult question to answer conclusively, as there are many quality legal research providers—though there are some generalities to consider.
For starters, many legal research providers are subscription based. That means you’re not “buying” them outright, instead you’re subscribing to them on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. Subscriptions can often include regular updates and enhancements to ensure you’re working with current materials.
Secondly, many providers encourage you to speak with a consultant instead of making a purchase that’s exclusively online. This can be beneficial as it allows you to customize a plan that’s tailored precisely to your needs.
That said, there are a few companies that make online packages designed for specific types of practices. This can be helpful if you wanted to get started quickly and don’t need to talk to a consultant. You can see examples of these types of packages from LexisNexis® here.
