Internet Newsletter for Lawyers

The Internet Newsletter for Lawyers is edited by Nick Holmes and Delia Venables and published by infolaw bi-monthly. It is distributed in print and PDF (A4, 12 pages) and published online.

The Newsletter has become a community of lawyers who are interested in how to make the most of the legal internet – how it presents the law, how it widens access to the law, legal aspects of e-commerce and websites, how lawyers use the internet to market themselves and to sell legal services online and related IT issues.
