Updated Lexis Advance Debuts Today

updatedlexisadvanceThe new updated Lexis Advance page debuted this morning.  It is less cluttered,  and the product appears easier to navigate.

At the home page, there is a Google type search toolbar with a word wheel.  Alerts, folders and history are immediately available on the home page too.  Search results entered in the search bar can be filtered by jurisdiction, category (case, statute, regulation), and practice area and topic.  You can also continue to do an advanced search, using terms and connectors, using the Advanced Search FilterShepardizing is an available option after a document is retrieved or by keying in “shep:” plus a citation on the search toolbar.

At the top left hand corner of the screen is a tab that allows you to locate Public Records, Litigation Profile, Practice Advisor, Get & Print, Verdicts & Settlement, and old Lexis.com.  Adjacent to it is another tab that allows you to browse by sources or topics.

The re-design does make it easier to navigate .  From my perspective, there are still some kinks to be worked out.  As an example, I found locating Law 360 impossible.  I assume the product will continue to be tweaked so keep checking.
