Larry Bodine gives the heads up on a new Web site he is helping to launch, JD Supra. The idea, apparently, is to promote yourself and your law practice by contributing content to the site. Bodine writes that he and Aviva Cuyler, a California lawyer, cofounded the site “to give members of the legal community an effective and convenient place to showcase their work and their successes.” Doing that, Bodine says, will help members get new clients, earn national recognition and media attention, and get access to a free legal research resource.
Although the Web page is up, so far it is just collecting e-mail addresses of anyone interesting in learning more. Pre-register and contribute documents before the site’s formal launch, Bodine says, and you will be promoted on the site as a “founding contributor.”
