New York, NY (PRWEB) November 07, 2013
The legal affairs news and information company Lawdragon has released its 2012-2013 Magazine, available for free in digital format and for print order. As in past years, the magazine showcases individuals from the most recent Lawdragon 500 Leading Lawyers in America guide (selected at the end of 2012), with 140 pages of photos and interviews with the most prominent lawyers from around the nation.
Among the feature stories, Rwanda’s Long Road to Justice examines the types of transitional justice mechanisms used in Rwanda since the 1994 genocide, including memorials, local village trials known as the “gacaca courts” and formal prosecutions at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) and Rwanda’s High Court. This is the third in a series of Lawdragon Magazine articles by Editor-in-Chief John Ryan on transitional justice mechanisms in post-conflict societies, based on his field research in Rwanda, The Hague, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia and South Africa.
In The Emerging Crisis Management Practice, Contributing Editor Xenia Kobylarz delves into the practices led by the likes of Michael Chertoff, of Covington & Burling, and solo practitioner Lanny Davis, who combine legal know-how with the inexact science of guiding clients through their most complicated crises. An accompanying article, Master Class in Crisis Management, provides seven tips for lawyers practicing in this field.
The Lawdragon Law School Project provides a preview of the company’s forthcoming website - to launch later this year - devoted to legal education. The new site will provide daily coverage and profiles of law schools, as well as a search and compare function to allow prospective students to better search for schools based on their financial situations and career goals. The site will feature results from the Lawdragon Law School Survey, which has so far been taken by more than 2,200 graduates and students.
Lawdragon is a fast-growing new media company that offers a unique platform for lawyers to reach consumers. In addition to attorney guides such as the Lawdragon 500, the website provides free legal news and features as well as a searchable database of legal professionals that includes online profiles of attorneys and firms. Attorneys can add their professional listing for free and upgrade to a premium profile to better showcase their practices. Visitors can view these listings for free when searching for lawyers, and they can also choose to fill out evaluations of listed professionals.
