LLRX REBORN WITH A SPIFFY NEW LOOK AND IMPROVED ACCESS TO ITS WEALTH OF CONTENT
By Neil J. Squillante
For more than a decade, Sabrina Pacifici's LLRX has provided lawyers, law librarians, and others with tons of helpful legal research not to mention legal technology information. In particular, I've always liked the overviews of the legal systems of other countries as well as Brett Burney's Legal Tech Reviews column.
While the excellent content continued to chug along year after year, the site began to show its age and even get in the way. It was time for an extreme makeover, legal edition.
So Sabrina retained Web design firm Justia to redesign the site, and just as importantly, implement a modern content management system — in this case Drupal, which is open source. The result is a fast-loading Web with several ways to find content of interest to you.
I especially like the featured articles on the top of the home page, the bookstore, the Google-powered search engine, the drill down subject categories to find content (though they can be a bit overwhelming to browse casually), and printer-friendly versions of all articles. Best of all for longtime fans, if you have a favorite author or column, you'll find it extremely easy to pull up all the back issues.
All in all, the new LLRX demonstrates the importance of user interface design in making information accessible.

"Just as James Brown was the hardest working man in show business, Sabrina Pacifici is the hardest working woman in legal research. In addition to her day job, Sabrina publishes LLRX, a monthly legal research and legal technology Webzine, and beSpacific, a daily legal resources blog that has become a must read for many in law and government. After ten years of LLRX and three years of beSpacific, Sabrina received a well-deserved four page profile in the December 2006 issue of Law Practice. Most interesting is the interview in which Sabrina discusses the origins of LLRX and refutes the lawyers as technology laggards stereotype."
