LexisNexis announces the end of Lexis.com; users will be transferred to Lexis Advance
Corrected: The legal research site Lexis.com will be shut down over the next year, LexisNexis recently announced, and users will be moved to Lexis Advance.
The company launched Lexis Advance five years ago, Robert Ambrogi’s Law Sites reports. Some lawyers were more comfortable using Lexis.com, and LexisNexis kept up two separate systems for both. Shutting one down will likely save money for the business, Ambrogi surmised.
“By kicking off this process now, Lexis.com customers will have adequate lead time before their upgrade,” Jeff Pfeifer, vice president of product management at North American Legal Research Solutions at LexisNexis, said in a statement. “Throughout the next 12 months, we will work closely with Lexis.com customers so they are fully aware of what’s changing and when; understand who their contacts are and what resources are available; and to ensure they are trained on Lexis Advance.”
