Pros: Takes the excellent legal research program LexisNexis and increases functionality with Microsoft Word. These two industry giants engaged in this way increases the efficiency of any legal document drafted. The ability to look up and cite cases within the Microsoft Word screen results in less hassle having to transcribe the information from one page or Lexis print-out to the Microsoft Word window. As well, the built in Shephard's citation tool will allow lawyers and students alike to ensure they are utilizing the most relevant information.

Cons: While the price of LexisNexis is high, if users own both LexisNexis and Microsoft Office subscriptions, this add-on is free to use. While it can be hard to learn at first, most of the features are intuitive. That said, like most Microsoft Office add-ons, all of the features of the LexisAdvance website are not available on Lexis for Microsoft Office, so it may still be necessary to pull up the website, such as when you have saved the relevant cases to a client folder and would like to pull them out of the folder.

Overall: Overall, Lexis is the industry leader in legal research and Microsoft Office is the industry leader in any kind of document typing or word processing. Therefore, the marriage of the two has created an experience that makes legal writing faster, more efficient, and with less distractions than ever before.

This is a plugin for Word that is supposed to help you cite check legal briefs.

Pros: In theory this should help you and save you time if you have a Lexis account. It provides links to the cases cited, provides some cite checking and bluebooking assistance.

Cons: The cost is so high. While this comes with your subscription to Lexis, the cost of Lexis alone is so high.

Comments: Jumping back and forth between different applications and research tools while you're drafting a brief isn't just frustrating it's inefficient. Lexis® for Microsoft® Office is the drafting and review tool that drastically cuts the time it takes for you to draft or respond to legal documents by running right within the Word documents and Outlook emails you're working in.

And because Lexis for Microsoft Office is combined with industry-leading content from Lexis Advance, you get direct access to industry-leading content right within the document you're working in, including robust filtering capabilities that allow you to refine your results and real-time signals from the industry's leading citation service, Shepard's®, which gives you support for your case with complete coverage from experienced attorney-editors.

What does that mean for you? It means you don't have to toggle between applications as Lexis for Microsoft Office works right where you work so you never have to lose your train of thought.

Pros: Saves so much time! You are able to share your motions right inside of Microsoft Word. You can convert an opposing party's pleading from a PDF into a word document and go straight to the authority. You can create tables of authorities in seconds, which used to take over an hour. Unbelievable time saver for the legal document drafter!

Cons: So far, CA is not a supported citation format, which is where I practice. For the most part there are not stylistic differences, but it would be nice to have all states' citations as options.

As a law student and future lawyer, it is very helpful for drafting!
