About

Whatever your field of practice, effective use of the internet is now essential to it. The Internet Newsletter for Lawyers aims to help you understand the internet and the legal issues it raises, guide you through the legal resources and tools available online, and assist you in the practical application of internet services to your legal practice.

The Newsletter was established by Delia Venables in 1997. It was initially a print-only newsletter, but shortly after, PDF downloads were added on her website.

Nick Holmes of infolaw took over as publisher, with Delia as co-editor, in 2007 when this website was launched. Delia retired from the Newsletter in December 2018.

The Newsletter is now edited by Nick Holmes, assisted by Alex Heshmaty, our technology editor. More about the editors.

There is free access to the Newsletter online on this site.

Our Internet for Lawyers free email service alerts you to new articles and posts on the Newsletter site and to new and interesting websites and online developments for lawyers. To receive the Internet for Lawyers email regularly sign up here.

The Internet for Lawyers CPD competence service is a separate annual subscription service, providing a planning tool to quickly and easily create and maintain essential records for SRA and BSB compliance purposes.
