netLaw 101: Web Development at BigLaw

In the next series of posts, we’ll dissect how the world’s top law firms manipulate the web to facilitate the practice of law. ¹

Following the chart described in last week’s webisode of “netTools 101: netTools Every Legal Professional Should Know,” we’ll start by defining BigLaw’s current web presence.

A firm will score 1 point for each category it fills in.  All firms will start off with three (3) points because the top row – phone, e-mail, and home page – are all a given for BigLaw.

In addition, a firm may receive five (+5) points for ease of navigation, accessibility, and/or advanced web savvy.

A firm may receive two (+2 ) points for creativity and/or engagement potential.

We’ll be looking for BigLaw Facebook profiles, LinkedIn profiles or groups, and Twitter accounts.

We’ll also search for blogs and podcasts (podcasts, again,  meaning any multipedia files: podcasts, video podcasts, webcasts, webinars, etc.)

To the extent possible, we’ll also determine how BigLaw interacts with the web and/or how it creates content, interprets data, and/or hosts any media files.

We’ll then compile and analyze our data.
