LinkedIn has been spotlighting some new apps that third-parties have been building for the professional social network. For one, they shared Creative Portfolio Display developed by Behance. They are also sharing Legal Updates.
Legal Updates was launched last week, and provides LinkedIn users with legal news and commentary related to their industry. It also provides connections to appropriate lawyers.
Aviva Cuyler, CEO of JD Supra, the creators of the App, says it was designed to benefit two groups: lawyers and professionals who look to LinkedIn for insight.
The app provides a custom feed of legal updates, a browsable, searchable archive of legal information directly within LinkedIn, and for lawyers, distribution and meaningful connections.
Cuyler talks more about the app in this post.
