NJ State Bar Association Members Use LexisNexis Legal Research Tool

Dec 09, 2003

New Jersey State Bar Association (NJSBA) members will now be able to conduct legal research online as a member benefit using NJ CiteLine, a customized Web-based legal research tool powered by LexisNexis U.S., a provider of legal, news and business information services. NJ CiteLine, the free legal research tool, will be available exclusively to NJSBA members at www.njsba.com, using a standard Web browser. The NJ CiteLine program joins InCite from the Pennsylvania Bar Association and IowaCite from the Iowa State Bar Association, which are comparable products geared to the practitioners in those states. LexisNexis also recently announced that a similar product, IllinoisCite, would be developed for the Illinois State Bar Association.

CiteLine will provide free access to a list of New Jersey legal research information. Primary legal sources available include: New Jersey Supreme Court decisions from 1790 and Superior Court decisions from 1792; New Jersey Tax Court from 1979; New Jersey Statutes; New Jersey Constitution; New Jersey Administrative Code; and New Jersey Court Rules. Bar members using NJ CiteLine also can link to additional sources of legal research information offered by LexisNexis for a fee. Some of the information sources are priced according to the NJSBA Member Benefits Program. Other services from LexisNexis can be purchased using a credit card.
