From Briefs to Bytes - Best Legal Website to Receive WebAward

Boston, MA, March 14, 2024 — The Web Marketing Association is looking for the best legal websites in the world as part of their 28th annual international WebAward Competition for Web site development at The WebAwards is the standards-defining competition that sets benchmarks for 90 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, 2024.

“In the legal sector, a website often forms the initial impression prospective clients garner of a law firm. With the web development landscape in the legal industry being notably competitive, firms stand to gain from an unbiased assessment of their digital initiatives,” remarked William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association. “Typically, legal websites tend to err on the side of caution, reflecting the industry’s inherent conservatism. Yet, they excel in delivering user-friendliness, thoughtful design, and comprehensive content. The WebAward Competition presents a singular chance for law firms to spotlight their websites, earning accolades for crafting an online presence that is both engaging and informative, while also pleasing to the eye.”

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:
· A limited-edition Commemorative NFT
· 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
· Social media posts for your company and personal feeds
· A highlight for your resume.
