Building web profile for the legal industry.

Legal Web Publishing Network

Stem is actively involved in developing projects that support the infrastructure of the legal web. We are always looking to develop quality content for the legal industry, and we use this network of websites, which is strategically integrated with our profile building and law firm seo services, to drive client awareness & promotion.

Stem is also open to publishing on behalf of our retainer clients, and partnering with other companies on new web properties. Please contact Steve Matthews to explore new concepts.


Florida Lawyers Blog Watch

Florida Lawyers Blog WatchThe Florida Lawyers Blog Watch is a one-page aggregation of the 50 most recent postings by blogging attorneys who reside in the state of Florida. The site creates a watchable ‘stream’ of Florida lawyer commentary, where media and those in the legal industry can track the day’s news at a grassroots level.

Launched in January 2008, the site currently tracks more than 125 different feeds. We are continually adding new feeds, and welcome suggestions for new additions. If you know of other blogging Florida lawyers, please send a note to Steve Matthews and he’ll get them added to the mix!


DUI Lawyer Blog Watch

DUI Lawyer Blog WatchThe DUI Lawyer Blog Watch is a one-stop shop for DUI law commentary. Similar in concept to the Florida Lawyers Blog Watch, tracks the 50 latest posts from DUI law blogs and aggregates them on a single page, allowing visitors to see a quick snapshot of the last few days’ commentary.

Launched in late July 2008, the site monitors more than 75 different feeds, including dedicated DUI blogs as well as criminal law blogs that have been filtered to only include posts that contain the term DUI or DWI. We want to see that number grow! If you know of another lawyer who blogs on DUI law, please drop a line to Steve Matthews or Phoenix, Arizona DUI lawyer Lawrence Koplow – we’d be happy to add them to include them. The Canadian Law Blogs List

The Canadian Law Blogs List was first published in September 2005 on the Vancouver Law Librarian Blog by Steve Matthews. Stem Legal is proud to continue the open spirit of the original list as it moves forward at with close to 500 Canadian legal blogs.

The Canadian Law Blogs List is an open directory with free listings available to any Canadian blogging lawyer, law librarian, marketer, IT professional, or paralegal. If you or someone you know publishes a blog that meets our submission guidelines, please let us know.


Clawbies – Canadian Law Blog Awards

There are lots of great Canadian law blogs out there, and this website is a showcase of our local Canadian talent. The Clawbies have grown from a one-man operation in 2006 to a three-judge panel (Steve Matthews, Jordan Furlong, and Simon Fodden) in 2011.

The Clawbies run every December, with final results released on New Year’s Eve. Although the awards celebrate the year’s most notable Canadian legal industry bloggers, we emphasize that the most important part of the process is the nominations, which are social-media based and open to blog readers in Canada, the US, and beyond.  We hope you’ll take part!

The Greenhouse

The Greenhouse is Stem’s creative playground. Here, we write about innovative technologies (especially WordPress), internal projects, and code experiments. We share interesting discoveries and how we spend our 20% time, and allow our inner geeks to shine. – Canadian Legal Publications provides a one-stop showcase of products offered by Canadian legal publishers. Using RSS feeds, we’ve mixed the 10 latest items for each of Canada’s major legal publishers. Each entry is passed along unmodified from the publisher’s original feed, and simply sorted by date to produce a dynamic, watchable list of the latest products available. The main page of the site also includes the linked headlines for each feed as an individual source.

The primary audience for is law librarians, and we hope this effort will help reduce the mountain of paper advertisements many librarians regularly receive. We also hope the site proves valuable to solo practitioners and lawyers in small firms who are tasked with creating and maintaining their own resource libraries.


The Lawyer Addiction Blog

Lawyer Addiction BlogLawyers are 50% more likely than the general population to be affected by addiction, and fortunately, help is available from lawyer assistance programs (LAPs) across the continent. The Lawyer Addiction Blog was started in January 2009 with the goal of increasing awareness about substance abuse in the legal industry, and is sponsored by the Decision Point Center.

On this site we aim to promote the help that’s available to those in need by highlighting these LAP groups, including their publications, functions and activities. If you are a volunteer or staff member who is interested in becoming involved in the Lawyer Addiction Blog, please contact us!
