vLex ranks your search results to ensure that the most relevant information is listed at the top.
- Textual ranking: scans the results and shows you information that most closely relates to your search terms.
- Legal ranking: higher legal status means higher priority. For example, a result from a higher court will have priority over a result from a minor court, and a piece of legislation will have higher priority than a bill.
- Citation frequency: documents that are cited more frequently rank higher.
- Social ranking: the way users interact with vLex gives the algorithm clues as to whether a document is helpful or not.
- Editorial ranking: vLex's editorial team manually selects the key search results for the searches that are conducted most frequently.
Use the drop-down menu in the top-right hand corner above your results to change the order to one of the following options:
- Most cited
- Most recent
- Most visited
