A law firm’s online presence has perhaps never been more important. From a law firm’s website and blogs, to its Twitter and Facebook profile, it is hard to imagine a world in which law firms were not present online. A recent article in the Globe and Mail only confirms the continuance of this trend, detailing the increased use of social media and twitter for many of Canada’s law firms.
With a law firm’s online presence being so ubiquitous today, it is easy to forget how far we have come in such a short period of time. A recent blog post from Precedent Magazine offers a fascinating insight into the history of the online presence of many of Canada’s law firms, offering screenshots and descriptions of many legal websites from the past. Although many of the websites seem basic by today’s standards, the beginnings of online legal innovation can be seen, with some firms even showing the beginnings of what we would later know as blogs as far back as 1996.
A look at Hull & Hull’s own website from 2001 shows just how far our own online presence has come in 11 short years. Although the blog you are currently reading had not yet made its introduction, you can see the beginnings of the website that we know today, with the website offering easy access to estates and trust information by making our Probater newsletter available online, and providing a “Will Drafting Tips” section.
