WSJ.com Launches New Law Page and Law Blog
The Law Page is a new, centralized webpage from which readers may link to a range of information and commentary on law and business related issues that the Journal is aggregating from current content as well as additional sources. This includes news links from Mealey's.com, and a new column, The FLaw, on law firm management (note: most of this content is available by subscription only, but there are also links to WSJ free features). The cornerstone of the content is the new Law Blog. Posting by WSJ Law Blog author Peter Lattman: "Our mission: to scour the universe for compelling stories in two related areas: business and law, and the business of law. Law and business is a broad intersection, encompassing such current news as the Enron trial, the Merck litigation and the RIM patent dispute. The business of law is focused on law firms and in-house law departments. We'll write about industry news and legal trends, with a sprinkle of good old-fashioned gossip." The blogs' RSS feed includes headlines and truncated entries.
