Tip of the Week: Be in the know with these listservs

Want to keep abreast of the lastest discussions, developments and events in the legal aid, pro bono or nonprofit technology arenas? There is a host of national listservs on these and other topics related to statewide websites. Picking one or two and joining the discussion is a great way to have the collective wisdom of these communities at your fingertips, and in turn keep your statewide website visitors informed.

You may also want to highlight useful national lists on your statewide advocate site so your members can see and join discussions relevant to your legal community. (For instructions on how to do this, see our Tip of the Week "Showcasing External Listservs" from 7/19/2005
