Articles

I’ve been writing about the legal web since 1995.

Internet Newsletter for Lawyers

Since May 2007 I have co-edited the Internet Newsletter for Lawyers (INL) with Delia Venables and I have contributed articles regularly. You can view my author archive there.

Internet for Lawyers CPD courses

Since 2005, with Delia Venables I have annually edited and published two or three new Internet for Lawyers CPD courses which include recent articles by Delia, Alex Heshmaty and me and many expert contributors.

Blogging

I started blogging in February 2004. This was a straight newsy blog called “What’s New on the Legal Web” using Blogger. I moved to WordPress in 2006, changing to a more personal blog. You’re here.

Pages on the Web

My “Page on the Web” column for the Solicitors Journal ran for six years from December 1995; it was ditched in February 2002 just as I was getting into my stride with an A to Z of the legal web. During this period I also wrote a few articles for other journals. These are all republished here in the timeline and are available via the Pages on the Web category.

Researching the Legal Web

By late 1996 the legal world had twigged on to the web and I wrote and edited, with Delia Venables, and typeset Researching the Legal Web: a guide to legal resources on the internet. The first edition was published by Butterworths in paperback in May 1997; the second edition was published by Butterworths in paperback in November 1999.

The nascent legal web

I discovered the web in late 1994, published a website in January 1995 and started writing about it soon after. In December 1995 I was installed as the web columnist for the Solicitors Journal, my “Pages on the Web” appearing monthly. I did not retain these old articles in electronic form. They’ve now been scanned in and republished here in the Nascent legal web category, but are subject to errors.
