So I read this article on Law.com by Jessie Seyfer about LawLink - The Attorney Network. I was interested (mildly) in what a social network site of just lawyers would be like.
It was even more boring than I thought it would be.
I uploaded my picture. I added my bio. That was about all I could do. There is no way to find people that I already know who may be in LawLink. Facebook and LinkedIn both allow you to upload you contacts and see if any of them are in the system. I tried searching for my firm name, but I am the only one who came back.
It seems to be a similar feature set to LinkedIn, but limits its users to lawyers. So what does it offer than LinkedIn does not offer? Why should I use LawLink?
