Keep track of your online legal research efficiently and for free

Lexbox allows you to create and manage your online research workspace. It enables you to assemble in one central location relevant legal information from online sources and your desktop, and to create personalized alerts. It is a trusted tool for legal professionals who conduct research online.

Your online legal research workspace

Organize your research record

With Lexbox, you can save your legal research finds in client/matter folders, subject/matter folders or any folder structure that matches your practice needs. You can store queries, cases, legislation, hyperlinks and your own documents. All saved items come with metadata, such as citation, issuing court and key-words, and you can also add your own notes. When you revisit your research record later, you will be able to work with content again quickly and efficiently.

Get alerts for new pertinent content

Want to stay up to date in your research? That’s what Lexbox’s alerts are meant for. You can set up alerts that will notify you when a new document matching search criteria is posted, when a new decision citing one that you saved in Lexbox becomes available or when a specific statute gets cited by a new case. You can choose to receive alerts at your preferred frequency, by email or directly in your Lexbox workspace.

Get more from your favourite legal research websites

Lexbox adds a powerful set of features to your favourite legal research websites: CanLII, NMOneSource, the SCC decisions website, Washington PERC, and a growing list of supported websites. You can save, create folders, set up alerts, organize stuff and move items around, without interrupting your research process.

Upload your own documents

Lexbox converts your own MS Word and PDF documents to HTML, automatically inserts links pointing to public legal information on citations, and makes them privately available and searchable online.

View your research history

Lexbox will automatically keep a record of your research history, neatly organized by date and research session. You will be able to retrieve your past searches and documents consulted in case you overlooked saving something important that you came across.

Export your research folders

The contents of your folders – cases, legislation, web pages, your documents – can be easily exported into a list of authorities, organized by content type and with hyperlinks to the original documents.

Share with colleagues

Your saved items can be shared in one click with colleagues along with a personalized note or comment.

Connects with your Clio account

The Lexbox integration for Clio allows you to start a Clio timer right from the CanLII website, or synch a Lexbox history session to any matter in your Clio account.

“I am a Labour Representative in the State of Washington. The Public Employment Relations Commission (PERC) has added Lexbox to their website research. As a non-legal professional that must do research using the PERC web-published decisions Lexbox is just simply an amazing addition to the public value of the PERC. I hope the entire legal community will soon be using this product for the publication and researching of decisions at all court and adjudicative levels.”
