It is used extensively by the team to review case law and precedents on behalf of the business law and real estate law work that is submitted to the system by customers. Lexis Advance is the primary research tool used by the company for all due diligence and research needs for our partners.
  • Navigation is Google Like
  • Great precedent tool
  • Comprehensive case law commentary
  • Makes search easy
  • Difficult to annotate.
  • Sharing with colleagues is sometimes tricky.
  • Highlighting gets too busy.
Well suited for case law research across many areas of law in Canada. Specifically found that it works well for extensive research where there are lots of things going on. It works well for reviewing precedents that need to be considered to make decisions for taking a decision. Less suitable for situations where we need access to real documents from the courts such as decisions or motions as Lexis doesn’t have that.
  • Reduce time spent on each case.
  • Law clerks more efficient.
  • Closing more files.
Lexis Advance is way better in terms of usability and search features. The content is pretty much the same for both platforms except in Litigation where WestLaw is much stronger than Lexis. However, the Feature functionality of Lexis is a lot better to keep users efficient and productive and collaboration is also good.

We occasionally revert to Lexis for legal research but primarily locate documents via Westlaw or PACER. I've toyed with the Microsoft Word plugin, but it is really not as helpful as it sounds. I have tried out a lot of their various tools and integrations. Each is a great concept in theory but they fail to live up to expectations.
  • Apps
  • Integrations
  • Citations
  • The app's search engine often won't load
  • Interface isn't as good as others
  • Statutes are hard to find
Lexis is really just best suited if you don't have access to Westlaw. Overall, it it does get the job done, but the user experience is not the best. Searches could be better indexed and relevant information (e.g. cases, statutes, issues, past searches) aren't as easily accessible. If you aren't doing a ton of additional research it is good for blue book citations.
  • Great for citations -- we have used it when writing briefs
  • Good as a backup or secondary resource
  • Integrates with MS Word
We have access, and therefore use it as a secondary resource or use it when an integration is convenient. Lexis offers a lot of various integrations and apps but they all have various issues. I feel like they should concentrate on just having one solid research service rather than attempting to compete with Westlaw by having a ton of various offerings but not a solid platform. It's really not terrible and all the sources you need are usually there, but it can be a bit buggy.

LexisNexis Quicklaw is used for legal research. It is used both to find the answer to a specific question by finding a particular case, and it is used generally as a starting point for research. LexisNexis Quicklaw provides access to case law via primary and secondary sources. In addition, it is a helpful tool to search statutes or regulations.
  • Quickly find cases
  • Find current and past statutes
  • Look up secondary sources
  • Sometimes the interface gets a little busy
  • Could be more streamlined
  • Too colorful
LexisNexis Quicklaw is best suited when you need to look up a particular case quickly. LexisNexis Quicklaw provides resources to make sure that the case you have searched is “good” law. LexisNexis Quicklaw is also very efficient in finding other similar cases that may be more on point to the facts of the argument.
  • Increased efficiency
  • Improved accuracy
  • Confidence in knowing the case you cite is “good” law
LexisNexis Quicklaw is better when you have a starting point and you need to sharpen the argument or check the status of the law.
