New York (November 1, 2010) – ALM, today launched its revamped Law.com website, connecting the legal community with news, research, social media communities, blog networks and job boards. Law.com’s redesign will strengthen the site’s position as the leading network of legal news and information.
David Snow, the executive editor of Law.com, comments, “Law.com is a hub for legal news and information, connecting journalism and research materials for the legal community in a more intuitive and interactive way than it did before. The new site brings together dozens of ALM titles for easy access as well as news and commentary from outside the Law.com Network.” The new site provides access to industry bloggers, commentators and opinion makers in the legal community, alongside ALM’s market-leading titles including The American Lawyer, Corporate Counsel and National Law Journal.
Features of the revamped Law.com site include:
· Edited news feeds from all the ALM national and regional legal publications provide a single source for legal news.
· Seamless registration across all ALM sites makes Law.com the easiest way to get from one site on the network to another, and back again.
· The Law.com blog network and legal news feeds deliver current news and comment from around the Web.
· A mobile friendly environment enabled for mobile Internet and smart phone users.
New functions such as “Most Viewed” and “Most Commented” bring users directly to the most active discussions.
Law.com already attracts a highly connected readership. 84 percent of Law.com readers have one or more of the major smart phones, and many have Facebook (67 percent), LinkedIn (63 percent) and Twitter (27 percent) accounts. The current site attracts over 400,000 unique visitors a month.
According to Jill Windwer, the vice president of Digital Products and Law.com at ALM, “Our readers expect to access and interact with their legal news as they would any other news and information sources. We want the new Law.com site to develop into an active legal networking community; we supply the information sources and the forums, and our readers can join in the debate.”
ALM’s Law.com is the Web’s leading legal news and information network.
