Welcome to the new Texas Lawyer, 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 network of ALM legal magazines, journals and newsletters.
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 includes our in-depth business of law content from senior reporter Brenda Sapino Jeffreys and our detailed coverage of the courts, judges and important Fifth Circuit decisions from veteran reporter John Council.
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.
Our new publishing platform will allow you to see the big stories of the moment as well as other recent coverage from all of our reporters. There’s no more need to send the law firm librarian a note about tracking down that article you saw a week or two ago. 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.
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 your specific organizational roles and objectives.
A litigator in Texas needs to know what’s happening in state courts and the Fifth Circuit—and Texas Lawyer provides that. But she may also want the latest on big IP cases in California or at the Federal Circuit—things she can find at The Recorder or National Law Journal. She’ll also benefit from insight into how other firms are handling rate pressure, or the evolving thinking around compensation practices, topics The American Lawyer explores daily. The new law.com platform simplifies navigating all of those areas of interest.
