Focusing on providing content-enabled workflow solutions for professionals in risk management, corporate, government, law enforcement, accounting, academic and legal markets, LexisNexis services 100 countries with its 15,000 worldwide employees. LexisNexis’s mission is to help businesses and other organisations improve productivity and increase profit.

LexisNexis strongly believes in advancing the rule of law, and as such has pledged to assist countries in the South Pacific such as Fiji and Papua New Guinea in updating and combining their laws. The company sets out to document national and international laws and make them available to all citizens, has teamed up with government and non-government organisations to make justice systems more responsible to the people and support enterprises that set out to strengthen civil society. LexisNexis is set to publish a body of Fijian and Papua New Guinean legal documentation later this year.

LexisNexis also works closely with the organisation ‘Slave Free Seas,’ who provide assistance to families and other individuals affected by human trafficking. One of LexisNexis’s core goals is to achieve equality and promote the rule of law globally.

These initiatives have seen LexisNexis recognised as an ABA100 Winner for Community Contribution in The Australian Business Awards 2015.

“We are delighted to receive this honour for our contribution to advancing the Rule of Law in the Pacific region. The rule of law is the foundation upon which prosperity flourishes and at LexisNexis we are committed to support local communities and developing nations to gain access to materials and guidelines that are essential to the proper administration of justice, which gives citizens the power to shape justice and advance society.

“We would like to thank our partners and everyone who gives generously of their time, advice and wisdom in helping us create sustainable and substantial long term improvement to communities in the Pacific and around the world”. said a LexisNexis representative.
