Comments... A good site with an attractive design although just a little "bitty" with lots of small pictures. There are pictures of the staff and partners but no descriptions, which does seem a pity. There are quite a lot of articles, most of which seem to have been written for newspapers and journals - that is obviously part of the firm's marketing strategy. However, the articles are quite hard to find - they do not seem to be referenced from the home page and only appear on lower pages. There is a newsletter offered in html format or as pdf. The firm has two additional sites Saltire Public Affairs, helping organisations understand and Lobby Parliament, and Online Risk, set up jointly with a computer company. Whilst enterprising in themselves, these 2 extra sites do look a little static.



The Tours are also published along with a much more detailed commentary in the Internet Newsletter for Lawyers which has been awarded Best Legal Journal for 2001 by the British and Irish Association of Law Librarians (BIALL). The newsletter features articles and stories from lawyers in the UK on topical issues affecting the legal internet and the information technology world. To find out how to subscribe, click here.
