Lexis Advance has Arrived


Similar to WestlawNext, Lexis has a new product called Lexis Advance which is now available to students at TJSL. To access Lexis Advance, you will go to http://www.lexisnexis.com/lawschool/login.aspx and log in with your normal Lexis ID. On the ensuing page, click onto the “Lexis Advance” link. Lexis Advance requires a different login. If you haven’t received one yet, contact our new Lexis Account Rep, Christine Yung Yusi, at christine.yusi@lexisnexis.com.

To learn how to use Lexis Advance, check out this presentation that describes how to use Lexis Advance.

Lexis Advance functions in a manner similar to WestlawNext in that you can search without having to first select a particular source.

The tutorial explains how to:

  • log in

  • limit your search after the fact by using various types of filters manage your results
  • save your search results
  • change the order in which your search results appear on the page
  • convert your search from a natural language to a Boolean search
  • save your search as an alert
  • email, print or save individual documents
  • use Lexis Advance folders to organize your research
  • find other Lexis Advance Tutorials
