Lexis+ Now Available at Jenkins


LexisNexis’ updated legal research platform, Lexis+, is now available on Jenkins' onsite patron access computers. Lexis+ adds a new modern look along with new and enhanced features. 

One helpful new feature available on Lexis+ is Shepard’s At Risk. Shepard’s At Risk adds a notification in cases that are at risk of being overruled. If a case’s authority is negatively treated by a decision in the same jurisdiction, the notification will appear. If applicable, you can find the alerts at the top of a document, in the Citing Decisions tab, and in the Table of Authorities tab.  

Lexis+ also adds a new Search Tree feature. Search Tree allows researchers to view a graphical representation of their natural language or boolean search. The tree is divided into different levels that show how each keyword and term & connector shape your results.

Familiar tools, like Lexis Answers, Search Term Maps, and Ravel View are updated in Lexis+ to provide greater capabilities for users. 

See the product page on Lexis' website for more information about Lexis+.

Try out Lexis+ on your next visit to Jenkins!
