In October, LexisNexis released its generative AI research tool, Lexis+ AI, for general availability for U.S. customers, along with limited release in law schools to select faculty, librarians and students. Now, the company is further expanding access to the tool, making it available to 100,000 second- and third-year law students starting in the spring semester, with some getting access as soon as this week.

Lexis+ AI uses large language models (LLMs) to answer legal research questions, summarize legal issues, and generate legal document drafts. LexisNexis says the product delivers trusted results with “hallucination-free” linked legal citations, combining the power of generative AI with proprietary LexisNexis search technology, Shepard’s Citations functionality, and authoritative content.

LexisNexis says it used its earlier limited roll-out in law schools to test the application in the law school environment. Feedback from that testing was incorporated into the product and rollout plans, it says.
