Resolved! Lexis.com is working normally with all browsers

This problem has been resolved. Lexis.com is working normally with all browsers. Thankyou for your patience.

Problem accessing the LexisNexis database with FireFox and Internet Explorer browsers

All Law students and academic staff, please take note!


The international legal database, LexisNexis, also known as Lexis.com, has developed a compatibility problem with the Mozilla FireFox and Internet Explorer browsers. (If you access it with these tools, you will get a page of meaningless letters.) The company is aware of the problem and has been seeking a solution for some months now.

Fortunately, there is a simple work-around for the issue: access the database with another browser! We recommend Chrome for PC users, while Mac users will have no problems with Safari.

Note: the problem does not affect the database for Australian law, LexisNexis AU.
