New on Internet for Lawyers December 2021

I have been writing about the internet for lawyers since 1995 when it first entered the public consciousness and the first few legal websites were born. These early writings, and many since, are published on my blog Binary Law.

In 2007 I joined Delia Venables editing the Internet Newsletter for Lawyers, launching the Newsletter online on infolaw. A regular contributor at the time was Alex Heshmaty, writing accessible articles about technologies. Together we have, since then, covered most topics that explain the workings of the internet – the basics, the issues, the technologies and the applications – as it affects lawyers, and these articles are all now gathered together in a virtual publication inevitably entitled The Internet for Lawyers. – Nick Holmes
