FindLaw notified lawyers yesterday that it would no longer host free law-firm Web sites and will remove the free sites from its servers on Aug. 1.

The notice states:

“Because of technical and business constraints, we are no longer able to provide this service. We are writing to inform you that this site will be removed from our servers on August 1, 2005.”

In 1999, FindLaw began allowing lawyers to create free Web sites and host them on FindLaw’s servers. Although it will no longer offer free sites, it will continue to provide paid Web development and advertising services to lawyers.
