About TopLaw

TopLaw Newsletters

All information, legal and otherwise, falls into one of two groups — primary or secondary source. TopLaw newsletters aggregate, curate, and categorize secondary sources — "news and opinion" in the vernacular.

As depicted in the above illustration, there's far more secondary source material than primary. Secondary sources are axiomatically suspect because the information is at least once removed from the primary source.

Notwithstanding its flaws, secondary source material can serve as a notification system and provide a preliminary understanding until you have time to research the underlying primary sources.

We at TopLaw carefully find the "top" source for everything you should know about in your law practice. Sometimes a major news organization has the best analysis but often it's an indie blog or even a tweet or a video. Sometimes we're the top source such as our in-depth TechnoLawyer Buyer's Guide reports on new legal products.

TopLaw newsletters save you time and unearth information you would never otherwise find. It's like having a personal research assistant. No need to juggle newsletters and bookmarks or sift through pages of search engine results.

Instead, effortlessly stay on top of the legal world with TopLaw — the only newsletters you need.
