CRIV / LexisNexis Bi-Annual Liaison Call

June 17, 2019

Conference Call participants: 

LexisNexis – Carolyn Bach, Sr Manager Librarian Relations and Faculty Programs; Teresa Harmon, Sr Director Segment Management; James D. Oakes, Segment Manager
CRIV – CJ Pipins, Chair; Karen Provost, Lexis Liaison
AALL – Vani Ungapen, Executive Director

Integration update:
We value the time and effort AALL has put into sharing their insights on our products and pricing, so we wanted to give an update on this topic.  We have made strides in our integrated product plans, based on customer feedback, by launching and migrating products to the same platform which provides a common navigation experience and extensive linking between products.  Recent examples of this include the launch of Context on Lexis Advance, leveraging the Ravel technology previously available in Ravellaw.com and the imminent launch of the CourtLink redesign on Lexis Advance.  We have also created seamless navigation across our ecosystem with migrations to a single ID which is complete or planned over the next few months for Lexis Advance (complete in 2017), Intelligize (complete), CourtLink, Dossier, Diligence, Nexis TotalPatent One and Newsdesk.  Taken together, these enhancements allow your users to best capitalize on the products a firm/organization purchases by having the simplicity of one ID, the efficiency of a common navigation, and the deeper insights provided by links between products.

As always, since pricing and packaging plans vary by customer type and are customized to meet specific customer needs, we encourage members to reach out to their LexisNexis account representative with specific questions.

Status of Annotated Georgia Code:
The key case on this issue, Code Revision Commission, et al v. Public. Resource.Org, Inc., has a potential to be heard by the US Supreme Court.  We are following that case and do not generally comment on ongoing litigation.

Unique Lexis Identifiers in Cases and making them accessible:
We are looking in to this question and will address during the CRIV roundtable session at the AALL conference.
