Legal Network Ltd, and the Technology Utilization Committee of the ACBA have formed an unique alliance to foster the use of online tools such as e-mail and the Internet by local legal professionals.
Another mechanism for increasing usage is providing legal web sites serving the informational needs of the local legal community. The Legal Network web site provides information on temporary legal staffing for both clients and employees. There are interactive pages allowing registration and order placing with Legal Network; answers to frequently asked questions; a map showing the national growth of contract legal personnel; classified ads; reprints of articles focusing on the industry; and lots of legal web links.
The ACBA’s web site provides free access to the local rules for Pennsylvania courts in Allegheny County; access to back issues of the Pittsburgh Legal Journal; useful legal web links and listings of upcoming events. The ACBA web site URL is http://www.acba.org.
In addition, Pittsburgh OnLine and Legal Network co-sponsor a web site promoting local law firms and legal service organizations doing business in Western Pennsylvania at http://www.law.pgh.com. Also, the ACBA Technology Utilization Committee has started a series of Listservs serving the local legal community.
