Do better legal research with iDissent, the tool that highlights dissents and improves citations in Westlaw and Lexis.
iDissent: The Safer Way to Cite
iDissent is a must-have tool for lawyers and law students conducting legal research.
Install iDissent and never mistake a minority opinion for a majority holding again. iDissent highlights dissenting opinions, concurring opinions, and syllabi while you browse cases. With iDissent, you can clearly see the difference between holdings and other opinions, even when you're quickly skimming a case.
With iDissent, you won't need to keep hunting around to see which judge wrote which sentence of an opinion. When you "copy with citation" from minority opinions, iDissent adds appropriate parentheticals, complete with the authoring judge's name.
Whether you use WestlawNext or Lexis Advance, iDissent will speed up your legal research.
When you add iDissent to Google Chrome, you will begin your free trial experience. At the end of the trial, iDissent will stop working. At any time, you can upgrade to a paid license so that iDissent never expires.
Lexis Advance users, please note that iDissent does not currently fully support every lower court opinion format in all states. We are continually working to add some of the more unusual opinion formats to our algorithm. If you spot a particular case that isn't getting marked up, bring it to our attention by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
