Readers of Indiana Lawyer’s daily email may have noticed that we have a new look. We listened to the ways our digital readers say they use the news provided, and we’ve adjusted the format to better serve you – our IL subscribers.
For some time now, the IL daily has provided readers timely notice of Indiana case opinions handed down by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and Indiana Supreme Court, Court of Appeals and Tax Court. Stories highlighting decisions impacting the practice of law and other legal happenings have been part of our regular lineup.
Beginning Dec. 1, the IL staff expanded its court opinion coverage, now including a short review of all For Publication opinions issued by these courts. It is our hope that providing you a snapshot of the court’s decision and link to the opinion on each and every For Publication decision, rather than a select few, will enable all readers, regardless of practice area, to benefit on a regular basis from this daily news report. All Not-For-Publication opinions will continue to be listed in the IL daily with topic and a digital link to the full opinion.
We have also added a social media bar at the end of each story posted on our website – theIndianaLawyer.com. We encourage you to post stories of interest to your Facebook page and share the news via social media.
A survey released last week by the Indiana State Bar Association revealed nearly 70 percent of respondents say they use social media. ISBA public relations committee chair Séamus Boyce reiterated that social media has become an important tool in the typical Indiana lawyer’s life, and that trend is likely to continue. See the story about this survey on page 3.
It is a 24/7 world where life moves fast, and we are all in this together. The IL daily delivers same-day court opinions and other legal news directly to your inbox. The email links you to our website, the home of Indiana’s latest legal news. If you have not signed up for this free service, visit the Indiana Lawyer and select the “subscribe” tab to learn more.
