Commentary on intranets of law departments

Many law departments host a site on their company’s intranet and this blog has noted several of them (See my post of March 1, 2007 #2: Honeywell’s legal intranet; June 24, 2007: Cadbury Schweppes’ intranet; June 6, 2006: traffic on the Office of Legal Affairs, Univ. of North Carolina; and Sept. 25, 2008: LexisNexis group and its intranet patent information.).

Some innovative ideas have surfaced regarding corporate web sites by lawyers, such as to put a small legal window on business sites (See my post of March 13, 2007: mini-intranet sites at Bank of Montreal.), push clients to search for answers on the site (See my post of Sept. 10, 2005: charge time to clients if answers are on intranet.), and cutting-edge capabilities (See my post of March 27, 2005: artificial intelligence software on intranet.).

Items on this blog address still other aspects of legal department intranets (See my post of Feb. 7, 2008: track client usage of your intranet site; March 5, 2005: altruistic information sharing; July 21, 2005: PDF manual on the intranet; April 5, 2005: law firms might contribute material; and Dec. 21, 2005: disappointing levels of contributions to intranets.).
