To the writing lawyer - we salute you

14 Mar 13
Here’s to the writing lawyer – to all you lawyers out there who blog, tweet and publish.

Most lawyers don't bother to write. They just do their jobs or bill their hours. You, however, take an interest in a topic, research it exhaustively, and provide valuable scholarship on that topic. You make yourself an expert, and in doing so, make a valuable addition to the collective knowledge of our trade. Remarkably, you share this work publicly and for free, on firm blogs, discussion forums, or journals.

In short, you elevate yourself and your profession. You are exactly the kind of lawyer we're looking for.

We've created an environment that now allows you to do this work -- this extremely time-consuming non-billable work -- in a way that concretely benefits, not just the other lawyers reading your work, but you as well. And, we’ve made it easy to convert existing articles and blog posts into thoughtful Redline queries, and to invite colleagues into your discussions.

We believe you are a lawyer with serious mojo potential, and we invite you to join us.
