How do I search using a Lexis Advance® practice center?

There are several ways to search using a Lexis Advance® practice center or jurisdiction page. To begin your research, select Client at the top of the page to associate your research with a specific client or matter. Then search using one of the methods below.

Note:

With any method, by starting from a practice center, you've narrowed your search to the area of the practice center. For example, if you're searching from the Health Care Law practice center, your search will be narrowed to the sources for Health Care Law, just as if you had searched from the Lexis Advance home page and selected that filter. Or, if you search using the New York jurisdiction page, your search will be narrowed to the New York jurisdiction.

 

If you select the "Add to search" (Add to search) icon next to another source, favorite, or topic, your selection will replace the filter that's already in effect as a result of searching from a practice center.

To select from all filters:

  1. Enter your search terms in the search box at the top of the page, using either natural language or Boolean search construction.
  2. Select the button to the left of the search button ( Search ) and select the filters you want to use to narrow your search.
