Lexis Advance: The Final Countdown

After some time running parallel login systems for its original and next-generation interfaces, Lexis Advance will become the default way to access LexisNexis research tools beginning on or around June 22nd. At that time, usernames and passwords will be deactivated, and the single Lexis Advance ID will be used to access both research systems.

The research interface will still be accessible from within Lexis Advance. However, alerts which were set up in will need to be migrated over to Lexis Advance in order to continue operating. To create new versions of your existing alerts in Lexis Advance, run a search for the same content in Advance and select the gold bell icon to create a new search alert. To review or edit your Advance alerts, select My Workspace > Alerts at the top of any screen.

If you do not have a Lexis Advance ID or need assistance setting up your Alerts on Lexis Advance, please contact Duke Law Lexis representative Marva Woods at, or call LexisNexis Customer Service (800-45-LEXIS).

Lexis Advance and are available by individual password only to current members of the Duke Law community. The Duke University community has access to a campus-wide version called LexisNexis Academic, which includes state and federal case law, codes, and regulations; a number of treatises and secondary sources, including the full text of law reviews and the legal encyclopedia American Jurisprudence 2d; and access to Shepard’s citation service for case law and selected secondary sources.

For assistance with using either the Law School or campus versions of LexisNexis, be sure to Ask a Librarian.
