Council Members Only
Lexis service is separate from the IPDC internet service. When you subscribe to Lexis you will be issued an ID number by Lexis, and can then perform research at the Lexis website.
The Council has an agreement with Lexis which enables Council members (all public defenders, contractual pauper counsel, and other court appointed attorneys regularly appointed to represent indigent defendants) to access Lexis at a reduced rate (pro-rated if you subscribe during the year). Under this agreement, Lexis services are to be used for public defender work only.
Services provided include access to all 50 states and federal court opinions, unlimited Shepard's citation service, unlimited "get a document by citation" to most any source; access to treatises, forms, law reviews, etc.; unlmited hypertext linking allowing users to link to items not included in the subscripton. You can see the full list of content available HERE.
