LexisNexis Southeast Asia secures Legal Tech accolade at Malaysia Technology Excellence Awards
As legal professionals increasingly look to technology to enhance their productivity and efficiency, the company continues to revolutionise the way legal research is conducted.
LexisNexis Southeast Asia, a leading global provider of information and analytics, has been awarded the prestigious Legal Tech accolade in the recently concluded Malaysia Technology Excellence Awards 2023 for its groundbreaking online research platform, Lexis Advance®, now equipped with a GPT-powered tool—Case Target.
The Malaysia Technology Excellence Awards 2023 is organised by the Asian Business Review, a prominent business magazine in Asia. The awards programme recognises outstanding companies that are leveraging technology to transform their respective industries and drive economic growth in Malaysia.
Lexis Advance has offered lawyers a refreshingly efficient way to conduct legal research since 2018 and has been described as an essential aid to all legal practitioners, juniors and seniors alike by a Managing Partner at a Mid-Sized Malaysian law firm. The platform is supported by a powerful and optimised search engine that understands natural language and Boolean queries, allowing users to search legal content in the most natural way possible.
An innovative research platform that draws upon Malaysia’s oldest source of case reports, Lexis Advance is equipped with a complete arsenal of features that allow lawyers to locate the answer they need in mere seconds. Top of the list is Case Analysis Malaysia (CAMY), which provides a holistic representation of a case through catchwords and a digest of primary legal issues, clear signals that indicate subsequent treatment of the case, and ‘cases referring to this case’—vital components allowing users to verify the authoritative value of the case they are relying on—at a glance!
Recommended Cases was the first AI-powered feature introduced in August 2019. The very first tool of its kind in the Malaysian market, this feature analyses the case a user is reading and scans the complete Malayan Law Journal database to locate cases with similar ratio decidendi. This is now a key component of Lexis Analytics Malaysia, which surfaces case reports with legal issues and facts relevant to a plain text brief entered by the user, equipping the user with data-driven insights from the very start.
The newest and most exciting component of Lexis Advance, however, is Case Target, a GPT-powered tool, introduced in May 2023. At the click of a button, this cutting-edge tool synthesises a user’s search results and provides a concise summary of the most authoritative cases within a practice area, complete with the most pertinent judicial reasonings, and a snapshot of subsequent treatment. Identifying the most relevant, persuasive authority has truly never been easier!
