Worth Noting: LexisNexis Total Litigator

Attention law clinic and trial practice professors!

Legal researchers are familiar with traditional LexisNexis
searching based on databases organized by jurisdiction,
source category, or broad subject matter. LexisNexis
Total Litigator offers an entirely different approach
to searching the same content. Organized according to
the civil litigation workflow, it helps researchers access
information by the specific tasks they follow throughout
the litigation process.

The service is divided among a number of categories,

Early Case Assessment
Intelligence Gathering
Draft, File & Serve
Trial Preparation

The Total Litigator is not easily accessed through the
LexisNexis Law School Research tab, so researchers
with valid User ID's and Passwords should bookmark
the separate LexisNexis Total Litigator web site.
Please note that academic users may not have access
to the full suite of services listed on the menu.
