EAGAN, Minn. November 21, 2011 -- FindLaw.com is introducing FindLaw Legal Pulse ( legalnews.findlaw.com ), a new content area that offers continuously updated legal headlines from around the world, along with news, photo feeds and analysis from such sources as Reuters, the Associated Press, New York Times and Washington Post. The content covers a broad range of law-related topics -- everything from Supreme Court decisions to legislative updates, everyday legal issues and even sports and celebrity news.

FindLaw Legal Pulse offers tangible user benefits -- the news is up-to-date, comes from a rich variety of sources, and is tailored to audiences with legal interests. However, it is more than a simple news aggregator. It also provides an immersive experience that features:

  • Additional legal-focused content from the FindLaw network;
  • A dynamic social media presence with blog posts and a real-time Twitter commentary stream from attorneys around the country;
  • A system that dynamically customizes content to a user’s interests. When a site visitor searches for news on a specific subject, FindLaw Legal P ulse serves up related topics, allowing the user to dig deeper into the matter.

"As its name suggests, the main thrust of FindLaw Legal Pulse is to monitor the legal world’s pulse," said Kevin Ahlvin, director of business marketing, FindLaw. "But it also allows users to explore a rich mix of complementary information and features. In that sense, it fits with our mission to educate consumers on legal issues. FindLaw.com is already a go-to destination -- it has received an average of 5.1 million visits per month so far in 2011 -- and we are excited to add another resource for consumers."
