Welcome to the Connecticut Law Tribune, part of the new law.com network!
We’re excited to share improvements we’ve made to the way we present news and insights from Connecticut and across the law.com network. Rest assured that all the local Connecticut content you’ve come to depend on—the coverage of Connecticut’s courts, significant verdicts, its law firms, the legislature and the legal community, as well as expert columns, insightful editorials, and case digests—is still here, just in a format that’s easier to read and a site that’s easier to navigate.
We know it’s local coverage and insights that keep our thoughtful readers coming back, and we’ll continue to provide it—in all the ways to which you’ve grown accustomed, as well as some new and creative ways.
And we’re looking to add more content in key areas affecting litigation, the business of law, in-house lawyers, regulatory issues and technologies that will help you succeed in your legal matters and grow your practices.
If you’re looking at this on your phone, you’ve already noticed one of many improvements—a responsive design allowing you to more easily view and navigate content. This will help you keep up with the latest breaking news in Connecticut.
Nevertheless, the finer points of your practice area, or perhaps simply your curiosity, can bring you beyond Connecticut’s borders. A lawyer who handles insurance litigation in Hartford will want to know what’s happening in consequential cases in New York, Pennsylvania and California, information they can find in the New York Law Journal, The Legal Intelligencer and the Recorder. That same partner will want insights on how other midsized firms are handling such high-impact issues as rate pressures, mentoring, compensation, diversity and cybersecurity, topics covered by The American Lawyer and our other regional publications.
Our new unified publishing platform allows you to start your day with Connecticut Law Tribune’s key stories and columns, as well top coverage from across law.com. The new law.com allows you to access stories from across the universe of ALM legal publications.
The site has been redesigned to help you drill deeper. We’ve also made it easier to find and follow the topics that matter to you most. You’ll see those topics on all of our article pages, along with other helpful context, and a view of the stories trending with users across our publications.
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.
A related notion is that the profession itself is under a lot of pressure and is changing rapidly.
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—practice areas, your local professional community and your specific organizational roles and objectives. The new law.com platform simplifies navigating all of those areas of interest.
Please take a few minutes and look around the site and let me know what you think.
