What is it?
LexisNexis is the premier database in use today for legal, corporate, government, and advanced academic research. Previously, this powerful tool remained an untapped resource in homeschool forensics, due to its price tag of over $3,000 per year for a single-user license. However, LexisNexis is now offering a group discount for homeschooled speech and debate competitors across the nation, enabling you to enjoy access to this incredible research tool for only $40 per student per academic year – mere pennies in comparison to its normal price!
What can LexisNexis do for me?
Students and coaches alike will now be able to easily and efficiently locate a wealth of highly- credible research and documentation, written by leading experts in both the public and private sectors. The vast array of available topics includes government, law, economics, social issues, technology, and private industry, from sources largely inaccessible via typical search engines.
According to their website, “across the globe, LexisNexis provides customers with access to billions of searchable documents and records from more than 45,000 legal, news and business sources.” Just imagine what this workhorse can do for your forensics research and academic prowess! You can cite LexisNexis sources with confidence, knowing they are of the highest caliber and readily accessible in their original, complete formats.
But that’s not all – LexisNexis is also the industry standard utilized for research in government, academia, and private industry. So gaining proficiency in using this search engine now can translate into collegiate excellence and marketable job skills down the road. What could be better?
