What is the current version and why should
I upgrade?

The latest Juris version is 2.8.6 and it was recently released. We recommend that all firms upgrade as soon as they can. This is the most stable version of Juris and each one we release in the future will further improve quality and functionality. Some highlights:

  • Older versions of Juris typically are run on outdated and unsupported Microsoft® platforms while Juris 2.8.6 is compatible with the latest. Running old versions of software presents a significant risk of downtime.
  • The Prebill selection engine has been re-engineered and is not much faster.
  • Short-term plans include integration with our payment processing partner, ClientPay®, improvements to the e-email bill feature, and an overhaul of Juris Suite Reports.

Please contact us to see what has changed since your specific version. If you are ready to upgrade now, our support team is standing by to help.

Are there costs associated with an upgrade?

As long as you have a support and maintenance plan, there is no fee charged from LexisNexis® associated with the actual upgrade. Our support staff will even guide you through the process. The only way you will incur costs from us is if you need us to convert a large number of bills and check formats. After this upgrade, some firms will need their bill and check formats updated. Our support team will do five bill formats and two check formats free of charge. If you want us to do more, then that would require Professional Services.

“Some relationships will be blessings, others will serve as lessons. Either way, never regret knowing someone. Everyone you encounter teaches you something important. There will be those people who will test you, some will use you, and some will teach you; but most importantly, there will be those who will bring out the best in you!”
