Lexis Advanced Quicklaw Updates!

Lexis Advanced Quicklaw has recently made important updates, including an upgrade to Lexis Practice Advisor, and the migration of Canadian Legislative Pulse.

Lexis Practice Advisor and Canadian Legislative Pulse can now be easily accessed through a single sign-in. With this new feature, users can switch from Quicklaw to Practice Advisor or Legislative Pulse using the product switcher located in the top left corner of the screen (pictured below).
