Welcome to the new New York Law Journal, part of the new law.com network!
We’re excited to share improvements we’ve made to the way we present news, analysis, and insights from our team—and from across the ALM portfolio of legal magazines, journals and newsletters.
Be assured that all the important New York content you’ve come to expect from The New York Law Journal is still here—all the coverage of NY’s courts, its law firms, Court of Appeals and legislative coverage from Albany, the expert columns and cases and case digests—just in an easier to read and find format.
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.
If you’re looking at this on your phone or mobile device, you’re already experiencing one of our biggest improvements, a responsive design that allows for easier viewing and navigation of our offerings. This innovation will help you keep up with all the breaking news from New York City and New York State that we’re posting throughout the day. It will also give you quicker access to all our special sections including the Professional Excellence Awards and the NYLJ 100.
Nevertheless, the finer points of your practice area, or perhaps simply your curiosity, can bring you beyond New York’s borders. For instance, a lawyer who handles high stakes shareholder litigation and corporate governance matters will need to know what’s going on in Delaware’s Chancery Court, or other key venues in Texas, Washington, D.C., and California. They can find that information in Delaware Business Court Insider, The National Law Journal, 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 publishing platform will allow you to see the big national and regional stories of the moment as well as other recent coverage from all of our reporters. We’ve also made it easier to find and follow the topics that matter most to you. You’ll see those topics on all of our article pages, along with a view of the stories trending with users across our sister publications. The new law.com allows you to access stories from across the universe of ALM legal publications. Our new shared platform allows you to see on law.com the big stories of the moment, as well as all the other coverage we’ve most recently published.
We’ve gone about making these improvements with a couple things in mind:
First, lawyers today rarely have the luxury to stay in one lane over the course of their career — or even a single workday.
Second, the profession is under a lot of pressure and is changing rapidly.
Our reporters and editors talk to lawyers like you every day. We know it’s more important than ever that you stay on top of developments across multiple areas of interest: there’s your practice areas or legal specialties; there’s our local professional community and legal network; and there’s the companies—both household names and fledgling startups—that make this city and state such a vital place to work and live.
