UniCourt Featured as Justia Connect Member Benefit

Making the law and legal resources free for all is the mission and driving force behind core projects and the success of legal information giant Justia

Since its founding in 2003, Justia has continuously been one of the biggest contributors to the open law movement by publishing countless laws, regulations, court cases, and much more online for the public to access for free. Justia is also a founding member of the PACER Collective and has worked with UniCourt since 2018 to improve access to federal court data from PACER.

In further support of its mission to increase access to the law, Justia is committed to providing lawyers with legal practice and marketing solutions designed to help them better connect with clients and grow their practices. The world-class products and services available through Justia Marketing Solutions include the Justia Lawyer Directory (one of the most robust online platforms for consumers to locate local lawyers), premier website and SEO services through Justia Elevate, and advertising solutions and PPC management through Justia Amplify. Justia is also working to connect lawyers with the best third party legal practice software and services as part of their Justia Connect membership program.

We are thrilled to share that UniCourt is now listed as a featured benefit in Justia Legal Deals, a core membership benefit of Justia Connect: the membership connecting legal professionals with benefits and resources to achieve their professional and practice-growth goals. 

In this post, we’ll share more about what Justia Connect is, how lawyers can take advantage of their savings through Justia Legal Deals, and why Justia Connect members need UniCourt’s Legal Data as a Service. 

What Is Justia Connect? 

Justia Connect is a new, free membership program designed by Justia to help lawyers share, learn, save, connect, and grow their practice. As members of Justia Connect, lawyers receive access to exclusive members-only resources and benefits created by Justia’s expert team of marketers, lawyers, and technology professionals specifically with the legal community in mind.

When lawyers join Justia Connect, they receive a free, professional attorney profile in the Justia Lawyer Directory, which allows members to greatly increase their online visibility, create opportunities to connect with new clients, and strengthen their professional brand and digital reputation.

Justia Connect members can also take advantage of updates on the latest in legal marketing and technology through Legal Marketing Updates from the Justia Onward blog. Written by an impressive team of attorneys, expert marketers, and technology professionals, the Justia Onward blog and corresponding Legal Marketing Updates help lawyers stay informed on the mounting changes and best practices of the legal marketing and technology industries.

On top of a wealth of resources available to Justia Connect members through the Justia Lawyer Directory, Legal Marketing Updates, and the Justia Portal, they can also share knowledge with potential clients, the general public, and other lawyers by participating on the Justia platform. With Justia Ask A Lawyer, attorneys can share their knowledge and highlight their legal reasoning skills to potential clients with a current legal question, as well as prospective clients who may have a similar question in the future. Justia Connect members can also leverage Justia Annotations to summarize and annotate cases, demonstrate their understanding of the law, and help make the law more accessible to the public.

To cap it off, Justia Connect members have access to the exclusive Justia Deals platform, which includes Justia Lifestyle Savings and Justia Legal Deals.
