Wisconsin Law Journal Site Has New Look, New Features

About a week ago, the Wisconsin Law Journal unveiled a new Web site. Besides a sleek new look, WLJ has introduced some sweet new features including several new blogs and a handful of RSS feeds.
In his introductory post, Managing Editor, Tony Anderson explains:

New features will include a variety of blogs touching on a range of topics relating to the practice of law and our courts. Readers will be able to comment directly on blog postings and stories, making our site a place to discuss the issues that are important to you. We also have added a daily update of the Milwaukee County Circuit Court calendar.
Bar associations and other non-profit groups are invited to visit our community calendar and post your upcoming events. And subscribers will be able to sign up for our daily e-mail news service – WLJ Today.
In addition to our Web site and daily e-mail updates, we will continue to provide our weekly legal newspaper with all the features you’ve trusted and relied upon for the past 25 years. Content that is more than seven days old will be limited to print or online subscribers only.

ABA Journal Has New Look and New Features

The ABA Journal has recently redesigned their web site. According to a post in the ABA TechShow blog, there are three main features:
Law News Now: “The latest legal news stories, hand selected by our lawyer-journalists. It’s updated continuously every business day.”
The Blawg Directory: “More than 1,000 blogs written by lawyers who are experts in their practice areas, with more being added daily…You can sort the directory by subject, who writes the blog (partners, associates, judges, law professors, etc.), or by the state or court they blog about.”
The Magazine: ABA Journal issues “back through 2005; issues from previous years will be posted soon.”
Very nicely done. I took a closer look at the Blawg Directory and found a number of blogs that I hadn’t seen before – including seven new law library blogs which I added to my list.
