The Internet Newsletter for Lawyers is edited by Nick Holmes and Delia Venables and published by infolaw bi-monthly. It is distributed in print and PDF (A4, 12 pages) and published online here.
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.
It is typically taken by lawyers interested in how to develop their website and how to make the best use of resources online (particularly free ones), lawyers looking to develop the services they can offer their clients, marketing people within firms and chambers working on raising their profile and getting new work, IT staff responsible for applications related to the internet, and librarians and information-related staff, who circulate the newsletter to those with a special interest in one or more topics.
The cost of a personal annual subscription is £50 for 6 print issues plus free access to the issues and articles online.
The PDF subscription provides access to the same content online with the latest issue emailed to you in PDF on publication and is just £30+VAT .
A multi-use licence, entitling you to copy the Newsletter in print or PDF for anyone in your organisation, is just £80 + VAT.
What our readers say
Tessa Shepperson, Landlord Law
Anyone in the legal profession who is at all interested in the development of legal services on the internet should sign up for the Internet Newsletter. I cannot recommend the newsletter highly enough.
Prof Richard Susskind
Keep the Newsletters coming. I’m a big fan!
Jill Cave-Browne-Cave, solicitor
I do enjoy your newsletter very much – it is certainly the best of its kind that I have ever read. May you continue with this, and your other great publications, for very many years to come.
Michael Haddrell, IT Manager, McEwens
The newsletter is a brilliant way to stay updated and connected to all the latest issues and developments.
Your Newsletter provides a vital tool for anyone trying to keep on top of developments in this area. It compares well with the SCL Journal, which may be more cutting-edge in terms of case law and technological changes but is really of less practical application for lawyers not specialising in media or IT.
The Internet Newsletter is about the best value newsletter my firm subscribes to and I have found it extremely useful both in trying to work out a web strategy and as a “portal” to legal websites which we might otherwise have missed.
