Welcome to the new The American Lawyer experience, part of the new law.com network!
Our improvements will deliver the same breaking news and in-depth analysis of core U.S. and international business of law trends, but in a more visually appealing, intuitive and user-friendly fashion.
The new design, including the vastly improved mobile experience, puts all of ALM’s news at your fingertips. You can still start your day at The American Lawyer but also easily access ALM’s broader offerings across publications, topics and geographies.
Our new unified publishing platform on law.com allows you to see the big stories of the moment as well as other recent coverage from all of our reporters, desks and bureaus.
We’ve undertaken these improvements with a couple thoughts in mind.
First, lawyers today rarely have the luxury of staying in one lane over the course of their career–or even a single work day.
Our reporters and editors talk to lawyers every day. We know it’s more vital than ever that you stay abreast of developments across multiple areas of interest in addition to business of law, including your practice areas, industry developments, your local professional community and your professional networks.
A lawyer who practices IP law as a partner at a large firm in New York needs to know what’s happening in Texas courts–and Texas Lawyer can provide that. That IP practitioner will also want the latest on big IP cases before judges in Delaware or California or at the Federal Circuit–so easy access to Delaware Law Weekly or The Recorder is helpful. Readers also benefit from insight into how other large firms are handling rate pressure, or the evolving thinking around compensation practices, topics we at The American Lawyer explore daily. The new law.com platform makes navigating all of those areas of interest easy and intuitive while still allowing you to keep The American Lawyer accessible and better than ever on mobile and your desktop.
Please let me know what you think of the new online experience. As always, I’m happy to hear feedback, questions and concerns. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
