DAYTON, Ohio, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Complete coverage of American Jurisprudence 2d Edition (AmJur 2d), a publication of Lawyers Cooperative Publishing, is now available on the LEXIS(R)-NEXIS(R) service.

For the first time, legal researchers have online access to all articles from every AmJur 2d volume in this comprehensive coverage from LEXIS-NEXIS.

A continuously updated legal encyclopedia, AmJur 2d covers every area of state and federal law, including civil, criminal, substantive and procedural. A well-known resource designed for conducting preliminary legal research and examining unfamiliar areas of law, every AmJur 2d article reviews and summarizes the principles of American law by providing their history, scope and limitations, as well as the differing views of the courts.

Containing over 400 articles, AmJur 2d includes direct references to leading cases, statutes and rules, and also provides practical aids such as checklists and form drafting guidelines.

"The comprehensiveness that legal professionals have come to expect from AmJur is now combined with the leading edge technology and the breadth and depth of sources of the LEXIS-NEXIS service," said Paul Brown, chief operating officer of Legal Information Services at LEXIS-NEXIS. "The addition of this highly respected legal reference resource solidifies LEXIS-NEXIS as the leading online provider of secondary authorities."

AmJur 2d articles contain extensive citations to influential case law and statutes in addition to annotations from American Law Reports (ALR(R)), the most frequently cited secondary legal source and carried online exclusively on the LEXIS-NEXIS service. Legal researchers can obtain answers in greater depth through easy-to-use links to ALR annotations cited in AmJur 2d articles, providing a seamless integrated research system from LEXIS-NEXIS.
