How do I search using Lexis®?

There are several ways to perform legal research with Lexis®. 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.

When you enter a search, you don't need to enter your terms using terms and connectors or natural language guidelines because Lexis automatically determines which type of search to perform from your search terms. For example, if you enter budget and deficit, Lexis will run a terms and connectors search, because the connector "and" is part of the search.

Note:

For information on constructing a Boolean search query, see Using Search Connectors (and, or, etc.) and Commands (atleast). For information about segment searching, see How do I search in specific segments?
