Major law firms across North America are contributing articles and court filings to JD Supra, which will soon launch as the best user-generated content website for lawyers and clients.
Everything about the site is free. Take a look at www.JDSupra.com/preview for a tour.
- Contributors get to post documents for free.
- Contributors get a free profile that links to their posted documents
- Lawyers and clients get to search the site for free.
Lawyers are not waiting for the site launch, set for later this Fall. They are signing up now to get Founding Contributor status -- which means they'll get special promotion on the site and other free benefits. It's the latest thing in marketing -- Web 2.0 meets the Law – yet follows the classic rule of marketing: do good legal work and the clients will call you. And, with JD Supra, you get to leverage the power of technology to showcase that work to more potential clients and referral sources than ever before.
I'm part of a team that is diligently working behind the scenes on JD Supra. Right now we are collecting content, and getting it from big firms, small firms, sole practitioners,law professors and public interest organizations across North America.
The prelaunch buzz around JD Supra is building, with positive responses from bloggers and news editors alike. I've mentioned it in presentations to marketing audiences in Seattle, Boston, Pittsburgh and Hartford – all audiences certainly took note. We expect to be featured in a number of national publications when we launch, to the benefit of our Founding Contributors.
