Web-Powered Law Practice - Benchmarking Survey

This is the form of our January, 2000 E-mail survey. See report of survey results

We're interested in documenting the "state of things" web-wise inside Minnesota law firms at the dawn of the new century.

If your firm as a whole or any lawyer or group of lawyers in the firm is using intranet or extranet technology in law practice, we hope you'll share a bit about what you've been doing.

First, to make sure everyone is on the same page --

-- An intranet can co-exist with a traditional office network but is distinguished by the use of a web server and web browsers to publish or manage information you use internally.

To be technical, an intranet uses TCP/IP, HTTP, or other "protocols" that are also used on the Internet. It's an internal mini-Internet just for use inside your firm. You may or may not have some other bells and whistles, like Active Server Pages, ColdFusion, Java, etc. powering your intranet in cooperation with your web server.

To be non-technical, your web server sends your web browser whatever you ask to see. You just browse and click your way around like you do on the Internet.

-- An extranet works the same way to allow selected outsiders (clients, cocounsel, etc.) to obtain access to information you do not want to share with just anyone.

You do not have to currently have an intranet or extranet to participate.


Four Quick Questions (two with subparts):

1. Do you have an intranet?

a. If so, please briefly describe it.

b. If so, when did you first install and turn on your first web server (experimentally or for daily practice)?

2. Do you have an extranet?

a. If so, please briefly describe it.

b. If so, when did you first install and turn on your first extranet (experimentally or for daily practice)?

3. What do your clients say about your intranet or extranet?

4. If you do not have an intranet or extranet at present, do you plan to develop one during the year 2000?
