ABA Best Practice Guidelines for Legal Information Web Site Providers

The Elawyering Task Force, ABA Law Practice Management
Section and ABA Standing Committee On the Delivery of
Legal Services, has developed Best Practice Guidelines for
Legal Information Web Site Providers.

According to the web page, above, "the goal of these
guidelines is to promote the development of quality legal web
sites and to provide guidance to legal web site developers.
The purpose of the guidelines is to establish "best practices"
for both lawyers and other web site providers who offer legal
information, documents and other services to the public..
the guidelines encourage publishers of legal web sites to
provide information about the legal content of their sites that
assists a user in making a judgment on the quality of the legal
information that appears on the site."
