JDSupra has officially launched and opened its site to the public today. The JDSupra site allows legal professionals to upload legal documents, memos, forms, filings and briefs and share them with the legal community. On the marketing front, lawyers and law firms can have their own detailed profile page that promotes their practice.
Many great organizations and firms have already started contributing documents, including the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Morrison & Foerster (my former lawyers at my previous company :) and many many others.
Justia is in the process of doing a major data upload of the higher quality research quality briefs and filings we have aggregated from Pacer for our featured case tracking service in Justia News). We are encouraging all of the law firms we work with to participate and share with JDSupra’s law library.
By working together we can help build a great new legal research library. This is a very nice start of a new free research service! So check JDSupra out and share. It will only be getting better and better as more people participate!
