LexisNexis Online Legal Resources for CLCs
NACLC and LexisNexis have entered into a partnership to promote the rule of law, through the provision of high quality, contemporaneous online legal resources to CLCs. These resources ensure that the disadvantaged and vulnerable clients and communities that CLCs service everyday are able to receive informed and timely legal assistance. See the media release for more.
After the initial twelve months of partnership, NACLC has renewed the partnership with LexisNexis until August 2018. LexisNexis will be seeking to draw upon the expertise of CLC staff and volunteers through focus groups and surveys. Targeted feedback might be sought on LexisNexis products, attitudes to technology and innovation in the legal assistance sector and the specific training needs of CLCs.
NACLC encourages CLCs to participate in these activities as a fundamental component of a partnership that delivers online legal resources at a substantially reduced commercial rate, and free of charge to CLCs.
Following an extensive consultation process with CLCs, the new package will offer a more targeted list of resources, focussed on those areas of law practised by CLCs. See below for a list of resources in the new package.
The operating platform for the online legal resources provided by LexisNexis and available to all CLCs has been upgraded. The new platform, Lexis Advance, offers improved functionality and ease of use.
LexisNexis moved to a new platform Lexis Advance on Wednesday 13 December 2017. If your centre used LexisNexis your centre can start using Lexis Advance now via the logins below.
Bookmarks and shortcuts for the existing LexisNexis searches became invalid from Wednesday 13 December 2017.
New bookmarks and shortcuts can be created for Lexis Advance after you log in.
For example if you have a bookmark or shortcut to search only Australian Law Reports for the existing LexisNexis that bookmark or shortcut will no longer work after Wednesday 13 December 2017. To create a new bookmark or shortcut you will have to log in to Lexis Advance via the login below and then create a new bookmark or shortcut after navigating to the Australian Law Reports Publication sections.
In preparation for the change to Lexis Advance you may find the 'Essentials for getting started' slides and/or 'Lexis Advance Awareness Video' helpful. Training on how to use the new platform was available through a series of webinars. NACLC also makes face to face training avaialble as needed, including at the National CLCs Conference each year.
If you would like to learn more about the new Lexis Advance, LexisNexis has also the following online learning resources such as user guides and videos available at Lexis Advance Knowledge Base and Practical Guidance.
Most CLCs should now have automatic login to Lexis Nexis via their IP address (or other arrangements in place where a centre has no fixed IP address). If you cannot access the Lexis Nexis Practical Guidance Modules or Online Research Products automatically from an internet connected computer at your centre, email NACLC at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject title 'LexisNexis access request' and tell us:
- a contact name and email at your centre
- your centre's Fixed IP address (this can be obtained from websites – e.g. http://whatismyipaddress.com/)
- number of people who will require training
and we will arrange for access to be setup with LexisNexis.
CLCs will be able to access FREE face to face or Webinar training. To inquire about training, please contact:
