Apr 19, 2001, 01:00 ET from Lexis-Nexis Group

    DAYTON, Ohio, April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- lexisONE, the Lexis-Nexis(R)
 resource for small law firms at www.lexisone.com , has introduced an
 affordable new service that delivers email summaries of late-breaking court
 decisions to subscribers.
     The new offering, Lexis-Nexis Electronic Advance Sheets, is very easy to
 use.  Lawyers select anywhere from one to 10 courts and from one to 10 legal
 topics that are of particular interest to them in their practice.  The service
 then conducts daily searches for case decisions that match those specific
 criteria and instantly sends an email alert with a basic summary of the
 decision.  From that email summary, lawyers can determine which cases to read
 in full and simply click on a link in the email that takes them directly to
 the full text of the decision.
     The new service is available now at a limited-time introductory price of
 $99 per year.
     "Imagine the time that an attorney would save if they had a trusted
 associate assigned the daily job of reading, summarizing and categorizing all
 of the breaking court decisions that were relevant to their own practice
 area," said Bill Carter, vice president, Online Services, for Lexis-Nexis
 Small Law Firm and Government Markets.  "With our introductory pricing, the
 Lexis-Nexis Electronic Advance Sheets do this job for less than two dollars
 per week."
     The new service is a breakthrough in the legal profession in that it
 allows solo practitioners and small law firms the ability to be kept informed
 of breaking court decisions without incurring substantial legal research
 expenses.
     "With Lexis-Nexis Electronic Advance Sheets, lawyers can keep up with the
 absolute latest judicial developments relevant to their practice by personally
 selecting the jurisdictions and practice areas of interest to them," said
 Carter.
