LexisNexis releases online resource for criminal lawyers
LexisNexis UK, a leading provider of content and technology solutions, has announced the launch of LexisPSL Crime, the latest module of the practice productivity product LexisPSL.
Comprised of practical know-how, forms, current awareness, cases and legislation in one user-friendly interface, LexisPSL Crime was specifically built for, and in consultation with, UK criminal lawyers.
The importance of having quick and easy access to trusted information in criminal law practice is paramount. Cuts and alterations in legal aid resources have made profitability a critical concern for many criminal law practitioners.
At the same time, pressure is growing from the courts due to new criminal procedure rules and paperless court initiatives, which require lawyers to act more quickly and allow for fewer errors. Market conditions have created a need for a comprehensive product that saves a significant amount of time and money for criminal lawyers.
Nick West, director of legal markets, said: “Criminal lawyers are experiencing difficult market conditions. LexisPSL Crime provides support for them in all areas affecting their clients, in an instant and transportable way. There’s nothing in the market that competes with it.”
The product was developed with some of the UK’s leading law firms and the criminal Bar, including Doughty Street Chambers and 18 Red Lion Court.
