So how is LexisAdvance different from WestlawNext®?

Check out Cleveland-Marshall College of Law Library’s web page – https://www.law.csuohio.edu/lawlibrary/guides/wexisnextcompared

This page shows the Similarities of LexisAdvance (for Law Schools) and WestlawNext.  It also higlights 14 main Differences in LexisAdvance and WestlawNext.

There is also a comparison chart – https://www.law.csuohio.edu/lawlibrary/guides/wexisnextcompared#chart

**To be noted:

Integration with Course Management and other software LEXISADVANCE
Not yet integrated with LexisNexis Web Courses, CaseMap, and Lexis for Microsoft Office.
WESTLAWNEXT
Integrated with TWEN.

However, Westlaw Next has been around longer so I am sure Lexis will be making updates in the coming year.

So take a look at the chart and the comparisons and judge for yourself!!
