JurisPro Database Expands LexisNexis Expert Witness Resources

May 20, 2005

LexisNexis U.S. has announced its agreement with JurisPro Inc. to make JurisPro's national directory of witnesses in over 4,000 areas of expertise available to LexisNexis subscribers. LexisNexis is a provider of legal, news and business information.

JurisPro was formed by a group of practicing attorneys who recognized the need for a powerful expert witness database - one that provides more than just experts' names and credentials and includes a wealth of information about each expert. The result is the JurisPro Expert Witness Directory, which LexisNexis subscribers can access online through the lexis.com interface, enabling them to: link out to experts' Web sites and contact experts via email, fax, phone, or mail and ?review experts' credentials and areas of expertise. Users can also link directly to JurisPro's Web site and: download and print experts' full curriculum vitae and online photos, hear experts speak to get an idea of how they present themselves, read articles experts have written that demonstrate their expertise, contact experts' references, and research experts' backgrounds as expert witnesses, including education, experience, occasions used as experts in court, and more.

LexisNexis will make the directory available not only as an individual source and as part of its combined expert directory source, but also in LexisNexis Analyzer, a product that is designed to enables researchers to run a single search on an expert through over 15 relevant databases, including case law, verdict reports, legal news, expert directories, and more, to quickly gain in-depth information about experts.
