Since 1997, lawyer Neil J. Squillante has been helping inform legal professionals about technology through The TechnoLawyer Community, a series of free electronic newsletters. What makes the TechnoLawyer newsletters unique is their commitment to “peer-written content,” meaning that they consist almost entirely of contributions written by their subscribers. The idea, as Squillante puts it, is that “those who work in the trenches of the legal profession better understand the legal profession than journalists far removed from daily law office life.” You can sign up for any or all of his newsletters for free at the site.
Last week, TechnoLawyer introduced The TechnoLawyer Archive, a searchable repository of all TechnoLawyer newsletters and posts since January 1997, including some material never distributed via e-mail. With material added every day, the archive, Squillante claims, is “the most extensive legal technology and practice management resource in the world.” Unlike the newsletters, the archive is not free. It requires a paid subscription ranging in price from $9 for 24 hours to $65 for a full year. However, you can perform a search and see a list of results for free, which helps in deciding whether to pay.
