Question

Q: How do I find Landmark U.S. Supreme Court Cases in LexisNexis?

Answer

The Landmark Cases page is located in the US Legal section of LexisNexis Academic. This page is not a search form, but rather a list of direct links to Landmark Supreme Court cases in US History. The cases are sorted alphabetically by topic, then by year, then alphabetically by party name.

This page is important because simply using the Federal & State Cases search form to search a frequently-referenced case such as Roe v. Wade may bring up many results. These direct links will guide users to the precise case and citation.

To get there on your own from our homepage, use "Find a Database", then look under the L in alphabetical order for LexisNexis.
