JD Supra, a site that allows lawyers and law firms to share content with other users, announced today that it launched a LinkedIn application called Legal Updates. Read this post for details on Legal Updates, and watch the short video to see how Legal Updates works.
If you are searching for a job, you may wish to add the Legal Updates LinkedIn application to learn more about practice areas. For example, if you are a law student interested in a career in employment law, you may use the Legal Updates application to have employment law updates delivered to your LinkedIn profile. Law students may also use Legal Updates to get topic ideas when writing notes, articles, and papers.
To add the Legal Updates application, click on “More” from the LinkedIn Menu and then “Applications.” Scroll down to the bottom of the Applications menu and Legal Updates is at the bottom left.
[Update - 9:09 CDT 7/16/10: You may sign up here for a live demonstration of Legal Updates. The live demonstration is scheduled for July 22 at 10:00 a.m. PDT.]
