vLex (formerly Justis)

vLex is a leading provider of award-winning research technology and global legal information, providing access to comprehensive primary and secondary collections from over 100 countries, all on one intelligent platform.

With over 2 million registered users, vLex provides a cutting-edge service for thousands of lawyers, law firms, government departments, and law schools around the world with up-to-date case law, legislation, secondary sources, and legal news.

Behind the scenes, vLex develops large-scale artificial intelligence systems to bring together legal information from over 750 publishers and sources to help legal professionals find the information they need.

In March 2019, vLex acquired British publishing company Justis, who provided over 30 common law countries with access to exclusive collections of legal materials and advanced research technology for over 30 years.

A natural synergy between these two independent organisations brought together a collection of over 120 million legal documents to create one of the largest collections of legal information available anywhere online, as well as unique expertise that promises an exciting future for the world of legal technology and publishing.
