Best Legal Web Site of 2017 to be Named by Web Marketing Association

Excellence deserves recognition and the best legal websites will be recognized by the Web
Marketing Association as part of it's 21st annual WebAward Competition for website development.
Deadline to enter is May 31, 2017.

Boston, MA, March 29, 2017 --( The Web Marketing Association is looking for the best legal
websites in the world as part of their 21st annual international WebAward Competition for Web site
development at The WebAwards is the standards-defining competition that sets
benchmarks for 96 industries, including legal websites, based on the seven criteria of a successful web
site. The deadline for legal websites to enter to be judged is May 31, 2017.

“The legal industry is very competitive when it comes to Web development and companies can benefit
from the independent evaluation of their online efforts,” said William Rice, President of the Web
Marketing Association. “Not surprisingly, legal websites are not known for taking risks - it's the way their
industry is. They score well in terms of ease of use, design and content, but past judges have noted they
would like to see more use of technology and innovation.”

Web sites are judged on seven criteria including design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity,
copy writing and ease of use. Each WebAward entry in the legal category is judged against other legal
entries and then against an overall standard of excellence.

All legal entrants benefit from receiving valuable feedback in terms of their specific scores compared
against the average scores for their industry. They also may receive specific comments from the
WebAward's professional judging panel on their Web site development efforts.

Winners of a WebAward in the legal category will also receive:
· Handsome statue or certificate of achievement
· Increased visibility for their company
· Marketing opportunity to promote the company website to the media
· Links to your site from the highly ranked WebAward site to help SEO
· Admiration of peers, friends and co-workers

Each year the Web Marketing Association names the Best Legal Website based on the scores submitted
by the competition judges. Recent winners of the Best Legal Web site include:
