Daily news service launches on The Lawyer's internet site

The Lawyer has expanded its website to include a dedicated daily online news service.

The free service, launched last Tuesday, is available on The Lawyer online website – www.thelawyer.co.uk. It is updated every weekday.

It includes stories about international and UK law firms, in-house lawyers, government legislation, new products and services, partner moves and deals.

Sean Brierley, editor of The Lawyer, says: “This is an exciting new development for The Lawyer. The pace of change in the legal profession is exceeding all expectations and there is an increasing demand for a legal media capable of breaking daily news stories to keep law firms and in-house lawyers in touch with events as they happen.”

“The daily news service also allows us to concentrate on improving the things that The Lawyer magazine does best, breaking big exclusive stories, offering analysis, profiles, comment and humour.”

The service is the first of many initiatives which will feature on The Lawyer Online.
