LexisNexis Answers Customer Requests for on the Move Access via iPad and iPhone
LexisNexis releases first major UK applications, On the Case and Legal Terms
LONDON, 15 February 2012 – LexisNexis UK (www.lexisnexis.co.uk), a leading provider of content and technology solutions, today announced the release of its first U.K. legal applications. Combining the trusted content of LexisNexis and the ease of use and seamless design of mobile applications, LexisNexis is proud to be the first major content provider to create apps for its U.K. subscribers: Legal Terms and On the Case.
Following feedback from customers about the increasing need to access information on the move, LexisNexis has developed two quick and simple iPhone apps that are user-friendly and give customers fast and accurate information. These apps can also be accessed on the iPad in iPhone format.
Nick West, director of Legal Markets, said: “The On the Case and Legal Terms apps fuse the accuracy, content and easy-to-use search you would expect from LexisNexis, with access from iPhone and iPad. Legal practice is evolving rapidly, and lawyers are increasingly expected to advise clients whilst on the move. By listening closely to our customers’ needs, we are creating ever-more flexible products – giving our users the ability to access our market-leading information away from their office as easily as they can at their desk.”
Both are free to subscribers of Lexis®Library and can be accessed with current customer ID and passwords.
Legal Terms: Legal Terms provides LexisLibrary subscribers with on-the-go access to key points of law. Covering a wide range of legal topics, customers can find the meaning of a legal term, the legislation where that term was defined and read the key cases about that definition. It also provides links to related terms.
On the Case: On the Case provides LexisLibrary subscribers on-the-go access to a wide range of case law. On the Case allows customers to search for cases by name, citation or key word, displaying results along with key words and a summary. To guide customers towards good law, each case is given a status signal indicating its treatment by the courts.
