Likelihood to Recommend

Lexis Advance

For the purpose of legal research, there are multiple platforms available with two big players. It is a matter of personal preference as to which one works best. Lexis, from my standpoint, is adequate but I prefer the offerings of their competitors.

Lexis Search Advantage

It is good for researching previous news stories on a subject and it can be helpful for tracking down people and their biographical information. If you're looking for academic studies on a subject, this is not the best place to go in my opinion. It is also not always current with addresses and phone numbers.

Alternatives Considered

Lexis Advance

Lexis Advance and Westlaw do the same thing and are very comparable. We actually use both. If Lexis Advanced doesn't have content we are looking for, it can usually be found in Westlaw. They compliment each other well. If I had to pick one over the other I would choose Lexis Advanced, but it's close.

Lexis is much more refined in its results. I use it because it is a newsroom standard and it is what is provided by the company.
