Professional networking sites for in-house counsel

Online networking sites that in-house counsel might find useful seem to be surging. The promise of linking with other lawyers who have like interests is infectious. I have written about LinkedIn (See my post of Jan. 19, 2008.) as well as (See my post of Jan. 30, 2008 #2.) and earlier I noted LegalOnRamp (See my post of March 9, 2007.).

In Law Practice, Jan./Feb. 2008 at 49, Tom Mighell describes the Texas Bar Circle, “the first social networking site for lawyers provided by a state bar organization.” Among its offerings, in addition to the de rigueur member profiles, is a section for jobs, discussion areas, and affinity groups. We will undoubtedly see more online networks that target in-house lawyers.
