Online Legal Services

Regularly updated with additions and occasional deletions.

When I created this list in May 2012, I confirmed all links. Since then, I have added services I have since found, noted below (just above the list of services in smaller type). I do not track if services are discontinued or links change but I discover by chance that a service is no longer offered, I deprecate it. Also, if I add a new service to a firm already listed, I check that listing, and if it no longer works, I deprecate it.

See also my occasional blog posts about Online Legal Services category and my articles about delivering advice via the web.

This list tracks large law firms that deliver legal advice, guidance, or documents via the web. It may not be comprehensive or complete. It does not include Extranets, Deal Rooms, training systems, or matter management systems. It does not include a group of start-up companies, which began emerging sometime after 2010, that offer what might be substitutes for law firm advice.

If you know of or find additional instances of large law firm online legal services, please contact me and include the URL.

You can view prior versions of this list:  January 2006 and January 2004.
