Students using Lexis Advance may have noticed the Law360 box located on the homepage, but encountered a log-in screen when trying to find out what is this resource. While Law360 previously could be accessed through Lexis’ search bar, it is only in the past few months that its content can be browsed and searched by students through the main Law360 interface (select the Law360 icon highlighted below).
This link will take you to Law360’s main page where recent important legal news, news and analysis organized by practice area, and other search options are available. Students can use the left-hand navigation bar to view content related to a specific area of law.
For example, say you were really interested in technology and the law, there’s a page devoted solely to that topic. Not only does the Technology page provide current awareness information about the subject, it also includes expert analysis by practitioners with significant experience in that field.
Some other ways to search Law360 content include the ubiquitous search bar and Advanced Search features. If you select the Advanced Search link, you can search content by Industry, Company, Law Firm, and Government Agency. While our Law360 subscription does include New and Expert Analysis, it does not include Case access. To access cases, you will need to locate them on Lexis Advance or other research platforms.
Another useful way to access Law360 content is by selecting the highlighted icon shown below which will display an additional search menu. In addition to providing access to legal content by practice area, students also can research firm-related information and even search for legal jobs.
