In brief: The Lawyer launches on to the Internet

This week The Lawyer launches on the Internet. The move has been timed to coincide with two other major landmarks for The Lawyer: it has become the official sponsor of the premier UK legal office exhibition Solex and the newspaper is celebrating its tenth anniversary. The internet site, which has the address, goes on-line on Tuesday, when browsers on the World Wide Web will be able to access the latest news and a database of all articles since August 1994. Also, The Lawyer has replaced the Law Society's magazine, the Gazette, as sponsor of Solex. Keith Searby, managing director of Truemist Exhibitions, said: “We have changed sponsors because The Lawyer offers greater commitment and a younger, fresher approach to marketing the exhibition. The Lawyer's tenth anniversary was marked by a gala reception last Friday at Gibson Hall in the City. A tenth anniversary supplement is free with this issue of The Lawyer.
