WSJ Online Launches New Blog

Jan 06, 2006

The Wall Street Journal Online, a paid subscription news site on the Web, has launched its Law Page and Law Blog, designed to provide timely news and analysis on events and trends important to the legal market.

The Wall Street Journal Online Law Page contains online-only content relevant to law firms, lawyers, and the businesspeople who work with them. It features a legal-industry blog--updated throughout the day--that culls relevant news on the law and lawyers from around the Web and also provides original news, analysis, and observations. The Law Page also includes a variety of law-related content from the online and print editions of The Wall Street Journal, Dow Jones Newswires, and Mealey', a subsidiary of LexisNexis, a provider of legal, news, and business information services.

The Law Blog will be updated throughout the day, every business day, to help lawyers and those interested in the law stay on top of industry news and buzz. It will include reporting from the Online Journal's legal team and Journal and Dow Jones Newswires reporters around the world. It also will link frequently to other sites and sources from around the Web. Through an exclusive agreement announced in November 2005, LexisNexis is the exclusive distributor of enterprise subscriptions of The Wall Street Journal Online to law firms in North America. The Law Page, which is available to all Online Journal subscribers, has launched in concert with the official start of that sales agency relationship.
