Student Associates

LexisNexis® has now been running their Student Associate support programme since 2002. There may be a Student Associate at your university or law school right now. We have Associates at over 50 institutions* and their job is to help students get the best out of the LexisNexis online research services.

What is a LexisNexis Student Associate?

A Student Associate is a law student just like you. He or she has been fully trained to use the LexisNexis suite of online research services and also in how to pass that expertise on to others. Associates run weekly or bi-weekly clinics to provide fellow students with free support and assistance in using LexisLibrary and LexisPSL. Students can consult them on problems such as how to find a particular case or statute, how to find all the cases relevant to a specific problem, how best to search in order to maximise results, or even whether a particular journal or other source is available online.

What can an Associate do for you?

With an Associate's help you can:

  • Find what you are looking for quickly and easily.
  • Save time - less time researching means more time for what's really important.
  • Stay ahead of your classmates - have all the information you need to do your best.
  • Reduce stress and be confident that you can deal with whatever an assessment or exam throws at you.
  • Win the moot - be the one to find that brand new case which swings the result.
  • Develop essential skills - research is an important part of any training contract, so why not hone your skills now with our help?

The LexisNexis Student Associates aim to help you find the answer for yourself - after a session with an Associate, you will feel better equipped to carry out similar research for yourself in future.

Join the Student Associate programme.

We recruit Student Associates between April and June of each year. If you are interested in the role, then further details can be found on the recruitment page of our website.
