The new site will be called Lawagora. Long-time blogger Carolyn Elefant (she is at myshingle and at law.com) announced it here and welcomes reader content, easily input on the platform she chose. Here is her intro:
I've just completed a new project that I'm rolling out tonight...Lawagora.ning.com - a marketplace of events for and by lawyers. In the past few months, I've realized how many quality events, on and offline are available for lawyers - yet we often never hear about them because the publicity is either ad hoc, or directed at a speaker's mailing list, which others may not know about. So I saw a need for a centralized location for all types of events of interest to lawyers, identified ning.com as a decent platform and set it up in beta.
Those with events should "visit the site and add your events - webinars, bar events or events for lawyers by non-lawyer providers."
