Remote Access to Lexis


Lexis recognizes the unique value that patron access at public law libraries offers to attorneys and other patrons.  They are continuing to offer offsite access.

Please read the attached details and contact the Hennepin County Law Library for access help. The best way to reach us is by email at or call us at 612-348-2903.


As a Patron of the Library you are probably aware that we offer Patron Access to LexisNexis. LexisNexis continues to partner with us and the wider legal Community during the Covid-19 pandemic and are continuing to provide access to Library Patrons remotely during this crises. If you cannot otherwise conduct legal research you are welcome to register for a temporary Lexis Advance® ID at

Note that you must use an email address that has not already been associated with a trial account.

This ID will be good until July 31, 2020 or 30 days (whichever is shorter). This ID allows you to conduct research on the cases, codes, and secondary resources needed for their legal work and personal legal research.
