Internet Newsletter for Lawyers
Legalease is best known for The Legal 500, Legal Business and The Practical Lawyer. In addition, the company publishes a series of technical legal titles along with a number of other professional titles including The In-House Lawyer and Lex, the leading title for law students. Many of these are also available on the web.
Lex (www.lexonthenet.com) is an online student magazine containing a mixture of news and features designed to meet the needs of those currently studying law or considering a career in the law. The website includes articles from the current issue of the printed magazine (published termly), a calendar of important events during the student law year (application deadlines, law fairs, etc) and information on the firms and issues related to a career in the law.
Legal Business magazine (www.legalbusiness.co.uk) is an established title for partners in the country's leading commercial law firms. Since its launch in 1990, the magazine has been at the forefront of reporting on the legal profession in the UK. It was the first title to truly address the business issues of running a law firm: for example, it was the first magazine to disclose solicitors' earnings and to review the performance of the judiciary. The magazine's awards evening, which takes place in mid-February, has been called the "Oscars of the legal profession".
Legalease also produces a number of specialist monthly journals. These include Property Law Journal, Employment Law Journal, Personal Injury Law Journal, Family Law Journal and Trusts and Estates Law & Tax Journal. Rather than taking a dry, highly legalistic approach, the journals have a reputation for providing practical and topical articles. The articles focus on key developments and case law, offering advice on how these developments impact those in practice. Trusts and Estates Law & Tax Journal has a sister product in Wills & Trusts Law Reports, the only specialised set of law reports in that field.
Indeed, LINK introduced many in the legal profession to a whole new way of working and communicating with one another. However, with the emergence of the internet and the proliferation of other general email services, we decided that a battle against Microsoft and the rest would distract us from our core business. We are proud of LINK and what it achieved during its lifetime.
Mark Cusick is the CEO for Legalease.
