The New PLI PLUS Is Here!

For the past year, we’ve been busy redesigning the PLI PLUS research platform for an improved user experience. Today marks the official launch date of the new PLI PLUS! Check out plus.pli.edu and let us know what you think! And don’t forget to visit the PLI PLUS Training Center for new and updated training resources.

The upgraded platform offers enhanced search and intuitive navigation, with a new Browse by Practice Areas feature that enables users to find content across practice categories and drill down to subtopics. The streamlined, modern design features a visual style mirroring PLI’s main website, PLI.edu.  Read the full press release here.

Customer feedback has been essential to our process every step of the way.  We extend our gratitude to everyone who gave us input on the design and functionality of the platform. We will continue to collect and incorporate your input for our developers for future enhancements.
