Hackney Publications announced today that Austin Legal News has moved from its initial WordPress Website to a new site (http://austinlegalnews.net/) in order to accommodate the growth of its news publication.
Hackney Publications, which is the national leader in the sports law publishing business, created the blog as a way to expand coverage of developments at law firms that do business in Austin and neighboring communities.
“Austin has more lawyers than anywhere in Texas, making it one of the most vibrant legal communities in the nation,” said Holt Hackney of Hackney Publications. “For that reason, and the increased interest of advertisers, we decided to redouble our commitment by adding another layer of sophistication too the publication’s Website.
“We encourage law firms that do business in Central Texas to reach out to us and share their newsworthy developments.”
“Austin Legal News has become an important resource for our legal community,” said Angela Silverthorne, Marketing Manager of Graves, Dougherty, Hearon & Moody and Chair of the Legal Marketing Association — Austin City Group. “It is one of the only places where you can keep tabs on the comings and goings of Austin attorneys as well as read original reporting about legal developments that are specific to Austin.”
Hackney Publications also publishes these other legal publications: Legal Issues in College Athletics, Sports Litigation Alert, The Journal of NCAA compliance, Legal Issues in High School Athletics, and Professional Sports and the law.
In addition to legal publications, Hackney Publications and its partners also publish a variety of technology and business magazines, such as Architecture and Governance and Today’s Wireless World.
