FindLaw.com Rolls out Modern, Mobile-Friendly Redesign

FindLaw is already your best online source for legal information, and it's looking even better this week. With an eye towards our mobile legal consumers, FindLaw rolled out a sharp new redesign for its Learn About the Law and Legal Directory sites. The updated look features a clean white background, easy to navigate iconography for links, and the bold orange of parent company Thomson Reuters.

The new site obviously looks great, but here's a deeper look into our redesign and how it will benefit our customers.

Mobile Optimization

The most important aspect of the new site is that it was designed specifically around mobile -- we built the mobile site first and then adapted our desktop version from there. We know that more and more legal consumers are gleaning information from social media and researching legal topics and practitioners on the go. So having a user-friendly mobile site is absolutely essential in today's legal market.

Another reason for the redesign actually comes from our success: FindLaw.com traffic has surpassed 11 million visits per month. And with that kind of volume, it's important that we continually provide a great user experience for both legal consumers and attorneys. Those users are more internet savvy (and impatient) than ever and expect a site that looks good and helps them find exactly what they need immediately. Our new site is designed to address those expectations with a modern, clean design that quickly guides our users to the content and resources they're looking for.

Redesign Will Keep Rolling

And our redesign isn't complete yet. While our consumer site went live this month, updates to our Legal Professionals site, aimed at our attorney users, will be updated and go live sometime in 2018. And renovations to our Legal Blogs and Answers sites will follow as well.

All in all, FindLaw continues to innovate and update the legal information and resources we provide and the ways we provide it. Rather than resting on our laurels, we'll keep working to make sure we remain the most trusted source for legal resources on the internet, and look good doing it, too.
