City law firm Simmons & Simmons launched a free internet service aimed primarily at in-house lawyers and law student. Elexica.com provides free internet access, offers external links to legal research sites and a searchable database.
Legal experts will host regular on-line discussions, legal developments in the UK and the EU will be summarised and legal/ commercial points, such as a checklist for employment contracts, will be highlighted.
Senior partner, Bill Knight says: "I see elexica.com developing as a thriving, interactive legal community which will set the agenda for legal debate and the standard for UK law firms. Our users will influence the way that elexica grows."
