Today marks the launch of Lexis® Legal Analytics, a suite of analytics tools that harnesses the power of big data analytics to uncover new or previously hidden insights.
The legal analytics platform is the first-of-its-kind in Australia. The suite is set to streamline hours of manual legal research and provide legal professionals with a distinct competitive advantage in the form of objective data points to better inform litigation strategy.
As the first showcase module of the Lexis Analytics Series, LexisNexis has introduced the High Court Analyser. It’s a solution that easily surfaces insights from High Court cases, including people and their connections, legal outcomes, words and phrases that have been judicially considered and most cited cases. High Court Analyser dissects thousands of pages of High Court judgments reducing the need for labour-intensive manual analysis.
High Court Analyser is integrated with legal research platform, Lexis Advance®, and is powered by the company’s industry-acclaimed case set, CaseBaseTM.
LexisNexis has a proud history of quality content and solutions that are based upon accuracy and comprehensiveness,” said Simon Wilkins, General Manager for LexisNexis Australia.
Lexis Legal Analytics draws upon 100 years of legal content publishing with the excellence of cutting edge analytics technologies, including machine learning and natural language processing.
This platform aims to make traditional legal work more insightful and is the result of us listening to industry feedback and applying highly advanced analytics technology to our vast content set. For our clients, this will mean efficiency and confidence that no cases and insights have been overlooked in their preparation,” said Mr Wilkins.
As legal professionals know, building a winning case is not just about getting your legal research right, it’s also about understanding the people involved, their connections and the potential outcomes.
High Court Analyser works by allowing users to analyse networks and connections of people involved in High Court cases and maximising the chances of success by helping identify the most experienced legal team for a specific matter.
The focus on interactive visualisation adds another dimension to legal research and case strategy, and the platform has been optimised for use across a range of devices.
The High Court Analyser was built by a team of legal specialists and engineers who joined forces in a project lasting eighteen months, to address challenges faced by our customers,” said Julie Austin, Data Analytics Manager at LexisNexis Australia.
We are currently closely working with our customers to develop the next modules that will complement our first offering, High Court Analyser. Looking ahead LexisNexis will continue to push boundaries and showcase what can be achieved through analytics,” said Ms Austin.
High Court Analyser is available in Australia.
