Online Legal Directory Has Searchable Database

Philadelphia's technology-savvy attorneys will soon have contact information for their colleagues at their fingertips. An online version of The Legal Directory 2005 will be available for the first time this year, giving members of the legal community access to a searchable database of firms and attorneys contained in The Legal Directory 2005.
 
Online subscriptions--which will run from April 1, 2005 to March 31, 2006--are avilable for $60 each. A combination of The Legal Directory Online and the hard-copy The Legal Directory 2005 can be purchased for $77.
 
Accounts will be password-protected--subscribers choose the password--and multiple subscriptions may be purchased to accommodate a firm's attorneys and staff.
 
While The Legal Directory Online will contain entries for Philadelphia-area firms and attorneys, it will not include some features available only in the print version--information on law-related associations, organizations and law schools; listings for federal, state and county agencies and offices; and the judges index.
 
A free preview of The Legal Directory Online can  be found online at www.thelegaldirectory.org. The online preview site utlizes data solely from The Legal Directory 2004. As of April 1, the site will be updated with all-new listing information for the 2005 printed directory.
 
Once The Legal Directory Online goes fully live on April 1, changes can be made to entries during the course of the year. The site also will be capable of accepting listings for new lawyers and firms, deletions, and orders for subscriptions and listing upgrades.
