FindLaw to launch new home page

Starting sometime tomorrow, FindLaw will have a new front page — or, more accurately, two front pages. Rather than a single page with sections for lawyers, consumers, small businesses, students and corporate counsel, as it has now, the new design will have dual front pages, one for consumers and one for legal professionals. A tab at the top of the page will toggle between the two views. You can see a preview of the new page here.

The new front pages are much less cluttered than the current page, each with information unique to the target audience. For legal professionals, the new page will have five sections: Search, Research the Law, Legal Market Center, Practice Tools and In the News. The page for consumers will have sections to search for a lawyer, browse legal information and find tips and tools. It also provides links to legal news and commentary within FindLaw.
