Collaboration between a legal department and its law firms on the department’s intranet

“The CBS Legal Department has created a new intranet, which is populated with substantive content designed to benefit CBS law Department’s in-house lawyers. This information, which is provided by both CBS’ in-house lawyers, as well as CBS’ retained outside law firms, includes breaking and new developments in the law and best practices in the industry.”

This quote comes from Robert Haig, Ed., Successful Partnering Between Inside and Outside Counsel (Thomson Reuters/West 2009 Supp.), Vol. 1, Chapter 6 at §6:29. The reference is not only to a good practice for law departments but a good opportunity for law firms (See my post of Nov. 30, 2008: legal department intranet sites with 12 references.).
