How to Maximize Your Enjoyment of the Immigration Law Community

Although you do not have to be a registered member to access much of the rich content of our LexisNexis Immigration Law Community, registration provides you with many benefits. As a registered member, you can:

  • Create your user profile.
  • Build your own personalized My Community Page.
  • Access content and downloads that are available only to registered community members.
  • Receive daily email alerts.
  • Receive our monthly Communities Update newsletter.

How to Register

On the home page of any of our communities, click on the Register Here! button on the right side of your screen. Create your own Sign In Name and Password and enter your e-mail address. We will not publish your e-mail address or provide it to any other entity. Then enter the Image Code you see on your screen, set your Time Zone, and click the Join Now! button. You are now registered for all of our communities.

Create a Profile

After you have registered, or whenever you are logged on to a community, click on the Account Settings link in the menu at the top of your screen, and then click on Profile Options. First, you can add an avatar or photo to your profile. You can upload an image from your computer or use one of our avatars. Next you can insert your biographical information in the Bio text box. You can type directly in the Bio text box, or you can paste text from Microsoft Word using the Paste from Word icon on the right of the text box menu bar. You can also add images to your Bio text using the green Insert Media icon on the text box menu bar. Additional information, such as the web site of your firm, the URL of your own Blog, or a public email address to contact you, can be added in Common Profile Options.

Create a Personalized My Community Page

Registered members may create their own personalized My Community Page that provides content from more than one of our communities. For example, although your practice focus might be directed towards the Environmental Law and Climate Change Community, you may also want the content from the News, Blogs, and Emerging Issues segments of our Corporate, Insurance, and Real Estate Law communities. Your personalized My Community page can deliver to you all of the relevant content from each of the communities. The relevant content from the last five days will appear on you're my Community Page. In addition, you can chose to receive daily email alerts of the new content that is added to your My Community Page.

Creating a My Community Page

Select a community that has content that you want to add to you're my Community Page. Click on the Add Content to My Page button in the left column and select the content types for that community that interest you. Then select another community that has content that you want and follow the same procedure. As you select the content types from each community, they are automatically added to you're My Community Page. If you should later decide that you want to remove a content type from you're My Community Page, simply navigate to that community, select Add Content to My Page, and uncheck the content type that you want to delete.

Sign up to Receive E-mail Alerts and Your Monthly Newsletter

Click on the Account Settings link in the menu at the top of your screen, click on Site Options, and scroll down to Email Configuration. Click Yes on Receive Emails, and if you want HTML emails, click Yes for Receive HTML Emails. If you want to receive daily alerts of content that has been added to the content segments of you're My Community Page, click Yes for Send Notifications.

Searching Across or Within Practice Area Communities

Search across or within the practice area communities by using the search box at the top of the practice area community. Select the Communities tab and enter your search terms in the search box. You can expand or narrow your practice area communities search by clicking the link immediately below the search box. Current members formerly searched across or within the practice area communities using the Search Communities function on the right menu of the practice area communities.
