Presenting the New Texas Bar Journal Website Since 1938, the Texas Bar Journal has been bringing Texas attorneys the latest Texas legal news, legal articles, and other items of interest. Since then, the magazine has seen a lot of changes, and this year is no different. We’ve recently redesigned the Texas Bar Journal website in an effort to serve you better. With anything new, there are bound to be questions. To help get you started, we’ve answered a few questions you may have about the new site. We’d love to hear what you think about our new look. Send comments to email@example.com. HOW DO I ACCESS THE TEXAS BAR JOURNAL WEBSITE? There are two answers to that. You can access the Texas Bar Journal online through the State Bar’s homepage (texasbar.com) by clicking on “News and Publications.” A list of publications will appear. Click on “Texas Bar Journal.” Or you can access the Texas Bar Journal directly at texasbar.com/tbj. There you can access a digital edition of the Texas Bar Journal or you can scroll through the “Features” and “Columns” sections individually. You can also find a link to an old feature — “Et Cetera” — and a Technolawyer link. Have questions about advertising with us, submitting information to us, or contacting us? We’ve got new links to answer those questions on the redesigned website. WHAT’S WITH ALL THESE CHANGES? We’ve redesigned the website to be more useful to you and to be easier to navigate. Not to worry, though — you’ll still be able to find all of the content that you’ve come to expect each month — legal articles, past articles, and online forms to submit information — plus, a little more. A LITTLE MORE? LIKE WHAT? Aside from the design, the website has more features, such as a dropdown menu on the left-hand side, making it easier for you to find what you need. The new site also has a new section for web exclusives, a Submissions page, an “About Us” section, and a “Contact Us” section in case you have any questions. HOW CAN I SUBMIT INFORMATION TO THE BAR JOURNAL? The new website has a Submissions page, where you can find out more about submitting information to the Texas Bar Journal staff. Here is the information that you can find on the Submissions page: • address changes; • back issues; • classified ads; • display advertising rates and information; • Laurels — recognizes Texas attorneys for professional accomplishments in the legal field; • Lawyers/Community Leaders — recognizes Texas attorneys for their community service and nonprofessional accomplishments; • legal articles; • letters to the editor; • Memorials — published as a tribute to deceased Texas attorneys; • On the Move — listing of Texas attorneys who have been promoted within a firm, transferred to a new firm, or have established new practices; • reinstatements; • report an attorney’s death; • reprint requests; and • subscriptions. WHERE CAN I FIND AN OLD COPY OF THE BAR JOURNAL? There are three ways to go about this. If you are looking for an article that ran in the last year, you can find it on our “Past Issues” page. Just click on the issue that it ran in, and you’ll find it through the table of contents. If you need an article that has run in the magazine before one year ago, you can search our online archives, also located on the “Past Issues” page. Thanks to a partnership with William S. Hein and Co., State Bar members have free access to a complete archive of the Texas Bar Journal, from 1938 to the present. Click the “Search the Archive” button below the past issues to access HeinOnline. You can then use search words or click on a year to browse a specific issue. You can print the article or download it as a PDF or text. If you need a complete back issue, go to the “Submissions” page, where you’ll find a “Back Issues” request box.

LAWAPP The latest edition of Black’s Law Dictionary (edited by Texas lawyer Bryan A. Garner) is now an app, available for iPhone/iPad and Android platforms ($54.99). The app version is fully searchable and supports bookmarks or entries. WEBLINKS LENÉ ALLEY DERUDDER is a sole practitioner and credentialed mediator at Alley DeRudder Law, P.L.L.C. in Plano. In addition to practicing law, DeRudder is creator of Lawyersin- Training (lawyersintraining.net), a resource committed to assisting law students and young lawyers in their career development. Small Business Support (http://smallbusiness.jdsupra.com) My law practice focuses on supporting small to mid-size business owners and operators. Small Business Support keeps me updated daily on the legal aspect of multiple areas that concern my clients. It is also well written — no getting lost in lots of unnecessary legalese. Cordell Parvin Blog and Work Matters (http://www.cordellblog.com) (http://texaslawyer.typepad.com/work_matters) Anyone who knows me has likely heard me talk about Cordell Parvin and Mike Maslanka. Both gentlemen have been great mentors to me. What makes both of their blogs great is that they share themselves — their experiences, their successes, their failures, and their wit. The Cuban Revolution: Brian Cuban’s Weblog (http://www.briancuban.com) Brian Cuban is an attorney with a passion for First Amendment issues and social media. I have no interest in practicing constitutional law; however, I thoroughly enjoy his blogs. Cuban has a gift for analyzing the substantive issues and gift wrapping it with a bow of dry humor. Makes for a great read.
