The Lexis and Lexis+(r) legal information platforms have introduced new features and enhancements. From a cloud based enhancement, to a state of the art motion metrics, to a new state code index, there is plenty to keep you up to date on the latest happenings in the legal field.
A new law in New Hampshire may not have had the greatest impact on your practice. But the law is one that demonstrates the importance of being aware of the proper terminology and a corresponding list of abbreviations. For example, the statute’s most rudimentary meaning is that teachers and school administrators should not teach inherently oppressive material such as incendiary statements. However, the law does allow the state’s superior court system to handle complaints about such material.
Another interesting feat was LexisNexis’s acquisition of IPlytics, a company specializing in providing intellectual property protection. Its newly updated reports on patent litigation and patent infringement will no doubt be of interest to lawyers everywhere.
A new feature is the Legal News Hub. In addition to a plethora of free articles and a hefty library of premium content, there is a dedicated blog with a focus on all things intellectual property. There is also a new MLex section devoted to a more in depth analysis of the implications of Russian sanctions.
As with most big technology companies, LexisNexis has recently rolled out new products and features. One of the more notable changes is the unveiling of LexisNexis InfoPro. It includes a robust suite of solutions that offer you the most comprehensive and accurate legal content available anywhere in the business. This platform, which is already home to Lexis, Lexis+, LexisNexis InfoPro, and the Lexis(r) Federal Securities Index, will now also feature an expanded Lexis(r) Alerts Guide and LexisNexis Context Analytics. These products are designed to enable attorneys and other legal professionals to identify the best legal options based on context, and to help clients understand the nuances of a given situation.
Another major new feature is the Lexis+(r) Fact & Issue Finder. Designed to provide users with a single place to find the most important facts about a particular topic, the tool will now include a docket, a publication status filter, and a set of top notch search features. Moreover, this product will also be accompanied by the aforementioned Lexis+(r) CourtLink and a docket and complaint retrieval feature.
Lastly, there are the new state code indexes on Lexis (r) and Lexis+ (r). They will be accompanied by a series of new feature-packed reports and an expanded 430+ treatises, including nine popular labor and employment related answer books. Also, the new Lexis+(r) State Code Search is a good ol’ fashioned search engine that can be used to navigate the Lexis+(r) library, with the ability to filter by state, city, and zip code. Using these tools, you can quickly find relevant laws and regulations in a fraction of the time. Whether you are a lawyer, legal assistant, or paralegal, you’ll be able to sift through the data in no time.
