The Council has an agreement with Lexis which enables Council members (all public defenders, contractual pauper counsel, and other court appointed attorneys regularly appointed to represent indigent defendants) to access Lexis at a reduced rate (pro-rated if you subscribe during the year). Under this agreement, Lexis services are to be used for public defender work only.

Services provided include access to all 50 states and federal court opinions, unlimited Shepard's citation service, unlimited "get a document by citation" to most any source; access to treatises, forms, law reviews, etc.; unlmited hypertext linking allowing users to link to items not included in the subscripton.

Your Lexis subscription through IPDC also includes access to download the Lexis for Microsoft Office (LMO). To learn more about LMO, please click here. To sign up for Lexis under this program, print out and complete the subscription form and mail/fax it to Teresa Campbell at IPDC.
