Advanced technologies and a modern intuitive design deliver unparalleled data-driven legal insights, while enhancing the user experience

TORONTO, August 15, 2022 – LexisNexis® Legal & Professional, a leading global provider of legal information and analytics, today announced the official launch of our latest innovative product, Lexis+ Canada.

Lexis+ Canada is the most complete collection of legal information including legal research, practical guidance, analytical tools, brief analysis, and bill tracking capabilities – all packaged in a modern user experience to deliver greater efficiency and better outcomes.

This next generation product provides access to the comprehensive collection of LexisNexis primary law information, including the most complete collection of courts and administrative decisions, Quantums, Case Digests, Case Citators and current awareness sources.

Additionally, Lexis+ Canada gives access to Halsbury’s Laws of Canada, the only up-to-date national legal encyclopedia. Lexis+ Canada also includes LexisNexis Online Research Service, with over 490 full-text textbooks and looseleaf publications in more than 30 different areas of law – unmatched in the Canadian market.

An improved user experience is also evident as the simplified design will set a new standard in ease of use. Striking imagery, bold colors and typography improve readability, reduce visual “clutter”, and emphasize essential information and tasks.

Lexis+ Canada also delivers enhanced functionality. The new “Experience Dock” creates an integrated starting point for core legal tasks and enables seamless switching between product experiences and workflows. New and intuitive features, such as Brief Analysis and Boolean Search Tree make it easy for practitioners to access the information and insights they need, control their search experience, and provide better counsel.

Overall, Lexis+ Canada was built around the user experience, creating a workflow-centered solution. By seamlessly integrating multiple tools in one interface, Lexis+ Canada allows our customers to work with more focus, while removing the obstacles of switching between multiple platforms.

“The introduction of Lexis+ Canada 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,” said Eric J. Wright, CEO, LexisNexis Canada.
