Bar Web site to get a fresh, new look January 15, 2005 Regular News Bar Web site to get a fresh, new look An ambitious overhaul of The Florida Bar’s Web site, www.flabar.org, has begun and should be finished for an official unveiling at the Bar’s June convention.Communications Committee Vice Chair Kim Bald of Bradenton told the Board of Governors last month that 3W Studios has been hired for the project and had already begun to redesign the Web site. The work is expected to take 16 weeks.The Bar is assembling a testing group that will work with 3W Studios, trying out changes for ease and user friendliness, she said.The Bar’s site now contains a huge amount of information, from contact info for every Bar member to lists of all its committees and sections to online versions of the Journal and News. Minutes of the Board of Governors meetings, committee reports, and other information are also posted.The goal is for someone going to the home page to get the information they want by clicking on no more than two hyperlinks, Bald said.On other matters, Bald said, the committee is continuing to work well with the Citizens Forum, which recently has been studying children’s legal needs and lawyer advertising rules.The panel also reviewed the Board of Legal Education and Specialization’s promotion campaign. A part-time marketing person — paid for by BLSE — has been hired to oversee that effort, she said, and the group of lawyers most likely to be interested in certification has been identified. Work there is continuing, Bald said.
