Lexis is currently working on an update to Lexis Advance that will bring some big changes to how the interface looks and add some nice improvements.  Unfortunately, the new release won’t be available until September (which will make things a bit tricky for those of us that would like to use Lexis Advance in our […]

WL/LX/BL Summer Access

Finals are over!  Congrats!  Now that “summer” is here, it’s time to answer a question that I get often throughout the school year.  Can students use Westlaw or Lexis during their summer work?  The answer is that it depends.  Each legal research vendor has its own policies on what summer accounts can be used for […]

Lexis Advance Enhancements

A couple of weeks ago, Lexis released some changes to Lexis Advance.  I wanted to run through a couple of them that I thought might be useful to you.  The first is the ability to select a source from the search bar.  When Lexis Advance was first released, there was no good way to select […]

Westlaw or Lexis?

One of the questions students frequently ask me is whether they should use Westlaw or Lexis.  My answer is the always frustrating “both.”  Why?  The fact is that you simply don’t have much control over which you’ll be using in practice, so you should get to know both systems in law school.  It’s true that […]

Lexis.com Passwords Deactivated

Since Lexis Advance debuted, Lexis users have had separate passwords for Lexis.com and Lexis Advance–which has been a pain.  In order to move to a one-password system, Lexis deactivated all Lexis.com passwords last weekend.  Access to Lexis Advance and Lexis.com will now be available only through a user’s Lexis Advance ID and password. If you’ve […]

Finding Treatises on Lexis Advance

As students head out to work this summer we see fewer and fewer around the library.  But, that doesn’t mean we’re not busy helping with research.  In fact, as students start getting research assignments from their firms or other employers we start getting a lot of phone calls, emails and chats asking for help.  We’re […]

As we announced earlier this school year, Westlaw will be removing its printers this summer.  We’re still figuring out an exact date, but it will be around June 30.  We wanted to give you a heads up now so that you can plan for the next few months while we still have the printers and […]
