Some changes went live on LexisLibrary International microsite on the 14th August that will improve the way you use the Database, helping you to find the documents you need more quickly. The changes have also improved the journey if accessing the site via a document or source link.


New and improved searching

The Search has been simplified meaning you can search by jurisdiction and content type or by jurisdiction and by sources. Content relating to European Law, the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court Reports, West Indian Reports and Bahamas Law all remain in the main LexisLibrary site.

For cases searches, if you know the dates you need, you can enter these either before running your search using the more search options link or after running your search on the results page. You can also narrow your search by specifying the judge. For Australian and New Zealand cases, you can choose a court using a drop-down list as well.

The search also has easily accessible support for when constructing your query. Just click on the help link by the search bar.
