Lexis+ will, the provider submitted, redefine legal knowledge.

“From solo practitioners to the largest law firms and corporates, customers have reported that Lexis+ allows them to have greater focus with a platform that removes the obstacles of switching between multiple applications and content sets. Customers have reported time savings between 25–50 per cent, leading to significant efficiencies in today’s dynamic and changing market,” it detailed.

This “next-generation platform”, LexisNexis continued, allows users to benefit from AI-powered insights supported by a Primary Law collection containing over 375,000 full-text judgments in Unreported Judgments and entries for over 700,000 cases included in Casebase®, as well as expert-authored content covering over 34 practice areas, often cited by the higher courts, available in a style that suits individual research needs, meaning users can be confident in their research outcomes.


Moreover, it delivers enhanced functionalities for all Australian lawyers, the provider said.

The news follows LexisNexis’ launch of its first Practical Guidance NFT, as reported by Lawyers Weekly late last week.

Some of the key features of Lexis+ include: Legislation Compare, Leading Cases, Lexis Answers, enhanced AI-powered search capabilities, Search Tree, search term maps, Lexis Argument Analyser, as well as fully integrated practical guidance modules, including practice notes, precedents, checklists, drafting tools and industry insights from leading practitioners.

The introduction of Lexis+ for Australian lawyers, LexisNexis Pacific and Asia managing director Greg Dickason (pictured) said, “represents a significant milestone in our strategy to deliver legal solutions that improve lawyers’ productivity, workflow, and their ability to deliver timely and strategic counsel”.

“The integration of new generative AI-driven tools is also a game changer for the industry,” he proclaimed.

The new platform is the result, LexisNexis Pacific head of core product Lindsay O’Connor added, of extensive customer feedback and workflow analysis.

“Users told us they wanted a solution that improves the quality of their research, speeds the delivery of insights and is easy to use. Lexis+ leverages cutting-edge technology, modern design elements and advanced data visualisation to improve research outcomes for lawyers in Australia,” she outlined.

“We are proud to launch a world-class product that allows lawyers to answer legal questions, apply legal strategy, and accomplish legal tasks, all in one dynamic new place that sets a precedent in simplicity.”

According to barrister Bradley Dean: “[Lexis+] stimulates my strategic thinking and problem solving. It sends me down pathways that I hadn’t previously thought about, and I couldn’t do without.”

Caroll & O’Dea senior associate Alex Collie also noted: “The mark of a good product is not necessarily that it saves time, but rather that it improves results.”

“The focus and clarity Lexis+ provides gives me the space to look at things differently and go a bit deeper. With Lexis+, I uncover things I might otherwise have missed.”

LexisNexis Australia is looking forward to launching Lexis+AI in 2024.
