There are new law related products, services and features on the market. Among them are the newest version of Lexis(r) and Lexis+(r). Besides the standard legal database offerings, these platforms are also announcing several other upgrades. In addition, several of the aforementioned products are now integrated with one another. This includes the newly announced Lexis(r) CourtLink, a docket and complaint retrieval tool. Additionally, the company is expanding its Intellectual Property Solutions suite. Its new products include the recently announced IPlytics, a service that provides clients with an end-to-end solution for protecting their intellectual property.
The Lexis(r) Legal News Hub has also been expanded. Now, users can access more than 30 publications from the likes of Bloomberg, Law360, and others. The site offers a searchable database of breaking news and regulatory developments in all areas of law. Moreover, users can access a number of useful features, including the Lexis(r) alerts feature, which lets users receive automatic email notifications about important events and other critical information.
Another product to note is the Lexis(r) Fact & Issue Finder, which was launched in September. This new product incorporates the best of Lexis(r)’s legal research features and brings them together in one place. Users can now perform a search in the Lexis(r)’s smart query builder and retrieve relevant facts from the database. To go with this enhancement, the company has included an informative publication status filter, a list of the most relevant news items, and a handy docket finder.
In other notable law related news, the newly minted Lexis(r) Brief Analysis 2022 Insurance Litigation Report has been refreshed. Specifically, the product has been updated with a new analysis that covers the latest case law in a few key areas. The product has also been bolstered by an expanded set of state-specific Gannett Media Corp news publications.
Also, the aforementioned MLex has been updated to include the latest developments in the patent litigation arena. Furthermore, the product has received an accolade in its latest round of awards. For instance, it was ranked one of the top ten tech companies using face recognition. Other updates to the product include the addition of nine popular labor and employment answer books and a revamped Civil Process Map for California. Lastly, the company has also been recognized as one of the leading providers of e-discovery technology.
As expected, these and other new products will keep the Legal Information industry busy. However, users should not be too complacent when it comes to their job duties. They should also be aware of the latest developments in the industry, especially when it comes to their own niche. Among other things, a good Legal Information Professional should stay in the know about their favorite products and services, and be on the lookout for product and industry news. Using the appropriate technology is just the beginning. Finally, they should consider taking advantage of the numerous research grants and research opportunities offered by their vendors. By doing so, users can be rewarded with cash incentives that they can put toward their next project.
