ADI panel attorneys can take advantage of special rates negotiated with both Lexis & Westlaw (which includes both Westlaw and WestlawNext).


To qualify for the Westlaw discount, you must be a member of the ADI panel (although you may be a member of other panels as well).

For pricing and packages, contact:


The Appointed Appellate Counsel projects have negotiated a deep discount on three different Lexis plans for current panel members. To qualify for the LexisNexis discount you must be a current member of any panel statewide.

For information about the plans and rates, contact:

Your sales representative will contact you to discuss package options and pricing.

Please note: The discount is not available to replace an existing contract with LexisNexis. However, once the current contract expires, you will be free to take advantage of the group rate for the new contract period. Other restrictions may apply. See representative for more details.


Although ADI recommends a paid subscription to Lexis or Westlaw (above) to ensure the ability to find all relevant authorities, their history and current validity, and their publication status, panel attorneys may also take advantage of free resources:

  • FindLaw: The Findlaw site provides links to a wide assortment of legal resources and has relatively easy search functions.

  • LexisNexis Community : This site is provided by Lexis/Nexis for sole practitioners and small firms. It provides free case law research of state and federal opinions issued within the last ten years and U.S. Supreme Court opinions since 1790. Search by key word, state or citation. For additional research, you can access the entire Lexis/Nexis library service by paying a daily, weekly, or monthly fee.
