    Head to WisLawNOW for Continuing COVID-19-Related Content

    Aug. 10, 2020 – The State Bar of Wisconsin has launched a new online community exclusive for Wisconsin legal bloggers. Called WisLawNOW, this community brings together blog content written by State Bar of Wisconsin members under a single website.

    More than 40 Wisconsin legal blogs have already joined WisLawNOW to expand their reach, showcase expertise, and contribute to this digital collection of legal information.

    Why WisLawNOW?

    1. WisLawNOW, developed in partnership with LexBlog Inc., creates a community of Wisconsin legal bloggers that readers can access in one place.

    2. WisLawNOW improves member access to a growing, timely library of legal knowledge that is searchable and responsive to mobile devices. Members can find or subscribe to content of specific interest through practice-area channels.

    3. WisLawNOW uses technology to expedite information delivery and extend the reach of member-generated content, potentially leading to lawyer-to-lawyer and consumer referrals.

    No Cost to Join WisLawNOW

    WisLawNOW is a member benefit of State Bar membership. Legal bloggers who join WisLawNOW will continue publish on their regular platforms, and RSS technology will automatically pull their blog posts into the WisLawNOW website.

    The blog author’s law firm and profile will be highlighted in the post, linking back to the original blog post. Take a look at the platform by visiting wislawnow.com.

    Blog posts must meet the Blog Post Inclusion Criteria. WisLawNOW will feature blogs related to the practice of law, including substantive legal developments, analysis of legislation or regulatory change, practice management and technology issues, lawyer ethics, lawyer wellbeing, and other topics that relate to the work of Wisconsin lawyers.

    To increase readership of this blog content, the State Bar will distribute an email digest to members every other week to showcase the best of this content.

    This email means greater distribution of your blog post. In essence, WisLawNOW allows Wisconsin legal bloggers to amplify their message, creates a community of legal bloggers, and allows readers to access all Wisconsin legal blogs in one place.

    The State Bar is actively onboarding member-bloggers. To be included in WisLawNOW, members must complete a short online form. After filling out the form, the blog will be reviewed for substance and technical requirements. For more information, read WisLawNOW’s FAQ.
