Lexis® Learn is a new interactive learning platform available to law school faculty to supplement their current research curriculum. It’s designed to help students learn legal research fundamentals outside of class so you can focus on in-depth content in class.

How will Lexis® Learn enrich my class?

  • Relevant – video tutorials cover first year core legal research skills
  • Research skills focused – skills learned can be applied to any research system
  • Engaging – interactive design fosters learning and appeals to millennials.
  • Flexible – assign any or all video modules to students for completion outside of class freeing up class time for deeper instruction.
  • Track & Assess – a powerful Dashboard includes detailed analytics to track completions and evaluate students’ understanding of core research skills

Students don’t just watch. They learn.

Each module incorporates video, animation, and questions throughout to keep students engaged. Questions test both basic concepts and require the student to apply what they learned by performing research to find the answer. This reinforcement and application process ensures students have a solid understanding of the material.
