7.  The Legal Issue Trail . . . (where have you been all of my life?) The Legal Issue Trail (LIT) is a patented tool on Lexis Advance that helps you find connections between cases on a specific point of law level that may not have otherwise been made. When you "activate passages," Lexis Advance puts a perforated box around each of the specific points of law or legal issues identified in the specific case. As a user, you now have the ability to review the case and once you find a point of law that is directly "on point" with what you are researching, you can click inside that perforated box (which contains the actual sentence or paragraph that covers the point of law) to get to a trail of related cases.  The trail provides links to cases that cite for the exact same point of law, as well as other cases that cite to your case for the exact same point of law!

6.  You Have Options: When you highlight any text in Lexis Advance, a green box and plus sign (+) appears. This feature allows you to save that highlighted text into a work folder, run another search using that selected text, or copy that cite and import it into your brief.

5.  Shepards Gets Graphical:  Shepard's still validates whether your cases/statutes are still good law and Shepard's Graphical gives you the history of the citing decisions in an easy visual grid.

4.  It's Not Just "History" Anymore:   You can search all available content but will only be charged a fee if you access (i.e. open) documents that are outside of your subscription.
