City Firm Denton Hall is determined to mark its arrival on the World Wide Web.
As there are 27,000 sites to be viewed on the web, the firm decided to run a competition for the best lawyer jokes and a legal problem spot, says Mark Turner, partner and head of the technology group. "We hope to put the best one on the page, if it's printable." The winner may get a bottle of champagne, but by more conventional means and not beamed down the Internet, he says.
With the volume of material already on the network, which is increasing daily, Turner thinks it is important to have a "bit of a light touch".
But Denton Hall will be putting the usual firm information on the site as well.
"In addition we have put a page of legal sources on, which can be used to access information about EU, and UK and US government material," says Turner.
As a lot of students use the Internet, the firm could put details of its opportunities on the page.
The pages were designed in the firm to be easy to use and allow access by icons.
