Following the acquisition of Justis by vLex last year, the new vLex Justis platform launched in March 2020, combining a wide range of legal information, from both common and civil law jurisdictions – with intelligent tools to create a best-in-class global legal research platform. These include case law, legislation, regulations, digests, draft bills, forms and contracts, law reports, legal blogs, official gazettes, books, journals, newspapers, court dockets, and more. Unlike traditional databases, vLex Justis also indexes content from over 100 external databases, making this new service an ideal starting point for comprehensive legal research.,
The vast collection of material on vLex Justis has been developed over 30 years, and through local and international partnerships with organisations such as CariLaw of the University of the West Indies, the Irish Council of Law Reporting, The Law Leader of New Zealand, LexBlog and JD Supra, as well as a recently announced partnership with the American Bar Association. Further partnerships are planned throughout 2020. Featured collections available on this new service include the largest collections from UK superior courts, Irish courts, all Caribbean courts, Latin American and Spanish courts, alongside comprehensive coverage from the United States, Canada, continental Europe, Australia, and coming soon, southeast Asia.
Graphical visualisation of case law relationships and treatments, tools that help to pin-point the most important sections of a judgment quickly, and intuitive search functionality, are key features of vLex Justis. These are complemented by a series of other exclusive features, including Vincent, an AI-powered legal research assistant. Vincent takes a different approach to searching. Using a drag-and-drop interface you can discover important and related information, not always possible through traditional search methods. Only vLex Justis has the volume and depth of content needed to power such an intelligent tool, making Vincent an unparalleled legal research assistant. The launch of vLex Justis makes Vincent available outside of North and Latin America for the first time.
Free trials for vLex Justis are currently being offered.
