Web 100


How so, exactly? For the first time, the ABA Journal’s extensive favorites list has added a web tools category that includes apps, subscription services and other digital solutions to help lawyers with their daily grind—or help provide greater access to justice.

The 2018 Web 100 comprises our 20 favorite web tools, joined with 35 timely and thoughtful blogs, 20 entertaining and informative podcasts, and 25 fun and useful Twitter accounts.

How do we choose the Web 100?  ABA Journal staff solicits readers’ thoughts about the best of the legal web (and considers our staffers’ own picks). We’ve also asked panels of judges outside our staff to weigh in and make suggestions.

Newcomers to our best-of-the-web roundup were featured in print, and the full list is below. Click on the subheadings for links and full descriptions of each of the nominees, and to read more about our judges. Now it’s time to look at our picks, open your browser and learn how to be a better lawyer.
