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.

It is great for most, general high-level tasks. If you need something more specific in a particular area, however, there may be better guides elsewhere. Though the materials are a great starting point, it still requires additional review and modification to suit your needs. Not all things are on point, but it's a great starting point

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.

They are pretty similar. I rely on practical law for certain practice areas more, and rely on the other platforms for other areas as they are more comprehensive and up to date. Lexis also is connected with Law360, and has a different set of resources, and has a strong shepherdizing tool that integrates well with what I need to do sometimes.
