ABA Launches Its Own Social Networking Site

The ABA has launched its own social networking
site called Legally Minded. The goal of the site is
to "create an unparalleled resource that gathers
law school students, academics, firm administrators,
legal support staff, judges, paralegals, attorneys, law
librarians and other professionals to contribute, network,
and collaborate online."

LegallyMinded enables you to connect with other members;
exchange ideas, files and schedules within virtual groups;
engage with other members via blogs, wikis, chats, and
discussion groups; explore resources in such areas as careers,
education, practice management, and diversity; schedule
meetings using an integrated calendar; and, rate and comment
on community content.
