Readers will be interested to know that there is now free online access to the online version of the well-established Internet Newsletter for Lawyers, jointly edited by Nick Holmes and Delia Venables. The Newsletter has become a community of lawyers who are interested in how to make the most of the legal internet – how it presents the law, how it widens access to the law, legal aspects of e-commerce and websites, how lawyers use the internet to market themselves and to sell legal services online and related IT issues.
A flavour of the range of topics covered is provided by the latest issue:
• David Gilroy looks at the new groups and brands offering legal services, and suggests which are the ones to be afraid of.
• Dan Fallon gives a primer on pay per click (PPC) – how it works, what it costs (with provisos) and how to get the best out of it.
• Brian Inkster gives his experiences of the new Microsoft Surface and considers whether it is a must-have for modern lawyers.
• David Mort tells us why client feedback is not just for compliance purposes – it is also for business development.
• Graham Ross brings us up to date on Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) and expects further rapid development in the year(s) to come.
• Nick Holmes considers Lord Neuberger’s BAILII lecture on the accessibility of judgments. What is BAILII’s role now?
• Delia Venables gives a brief review of Richard Susskind’s new book Tomorrow’s Lawyers.
