Database Demo: LexisNexis

LexisNexis is the premier legal research database, providing access to over 9,000 full-text news, business, medical, and legal publications. The Look Up a Legal Case feature allows you to search for legal cases on the federal and state levels.

Look Up a Legal Case

Use the box in the middle to find legal cases by citation, party names, or topic.

  • By citation:
    • Enter 465 U.S. 555 or 347 U.S. 483 into the search box and hit the blue "Go" button
    • Entering a specific legal citation will take you directly to the full-text of the case (Grove City College v. Bell, in this case)
    • Use the menu on the top right of the results page to print, email, download, or look at Shepard's Citations
  • By parties:
    • Enter Cannon in the first search box and University of Chicago in the second search box; hit the blue "Go" button
    • The order of names does not matter; LexisNexis will search both combinations
    • On the results page, use the left hand menu to narrow down the results by the type of case (US Supreme Court, US District Courts, etc.)
    • Click on any one of the blue links in the results list to read the case file
    • Use the menu on the top right of the results page to print, email, download, or look at Shepard's Citations

    • Use the "Search within results" box at the top right to narrow your result list even further
