Online legal community goes live

CENTAUR Communications, publisher of The Lawyer, has launched a legal “community” on the internet in a unique venture for the legal profession.

Visitors to www.interactive-lawyer.com, can access news, case law and legislation, apply for jobs, order law books, and receive an up-to-the-minute index of nationwide legal events.

A range of information centres for specialist lawyers and a discussion forum will be added at a later stage.

Online legal information provider Lawtel and The Lawyer are the main providers of the site's content. The site is also accessible via www.the-lawyer.co.uk and www.lawtel.co.uk.

Rachel Lesiter, publisher of The Lawyer, says: “The community offers instant access to a comprehensive range of high-quality information and services from brands the legal profession trusts.”
