Online Resources

The Philadelphia Bar Association produces three online publications, a library of audio and video Podcasts, and member blogs.


The Association currently operates three blogs: The Criminal Justice Section blog, the Women in the Profession Committee blog and the Young Lawyers Division blog. Below are recent posts from the blogs.


The YLD EZine is a colorful, interactive new online magazine for getting the latest news, photos, event details, hot column topics, podcasts, blogs and much more. E-mailed to the Association's young attorneys every Friday, the YLD EZine is targeted for today's young attorney on the go.


Bar Reporter Online is the Association's weekly e-newsbrief. E-mailed to Association members every Monday morning as an HTML attachment, it provides news and updates on Association activities, as well as the activities of legal services organizations funded by the Philadelphia Bar Foundation, between regular issues of Philadelphia Bar Reporter.

Subscriptions to Bar Reporter Online are free. To subscribe, fill out and submit the online form. Your subscripton request will be sent to the managing editor, and you will receive an e-mail confirmation upon approval.

Podcasts are digital audio files, available for free download, of Bar Association events and exclusive interviews of newsmakers and service providers.


The Legal Directory Online

The Legal Directory and The Legal Directory Online are now together at one low price. For the first time, every hard-copy edition comes with a complimentary online subscription. As always, both printed and online editions of The Legal Directory will contain comprehensive, up-to-date listings of area law firms and attorneys.

The online version also will include all the indispensable resources found in the printed directory — information about the Philadelphia Bar Association, its officers and committees; contacts for state, federal and local government agencies; listings of law-related associations, organizations and law schools; and an index of area judges.

Plus, The Legal Directory Online will include valuable new features — local court rules, links to area bar associations and other content of interest to the legal community.

It's all available, both the printed book and expanded online resource, for one price. To order, visit The Legal Directory Online.

The Legal Directory, sponsored by the Philadelphia Bar Association and PNC Advisors, accepts display advertising prior to an early January deadline. Contact contacting Advertising & Sales Director Donald Chalphin at The Legal Intelligencer at (215) 557-2359 for more information.
