List of Searchable Fields (Segments)

In Nexis Uni®, all documents of the same type have a common structure, composed of the natural parts or divisions referred to as segments. You can restrict your search to a specific part or segment of a document, such as the court that heard the case or the judge who wrote the opinion. Different types of documents have different segments. For instance, a case doesn't have the same segments as a newspaper article. Segment searching is especially useful when you are looking for:

  • Opinions written by a particular judge
  • Cases involving a specific party
  • News stories published by a specific author or on a specific date

To search in a specific segment, you can use the options on the Advanced Search form (look for the link right below the search box), or type the segment name followed by your search terms in parentheses in the search box. This example uses the "name" segment for searching by party name:

    name(griggs and duke)
