ALM takes ‘Connecticut Law Tribune’ digital-only
The ‘reinvention’ of the weekly print product as a purely digital offering follows a similar initiative by another ALM publication, Texas Lawyer
NEW YORK, NY – July 5, 2016 — After 42 years of serving the Connecticut legal community with a weekly print newspaper, the Connecticut Law Tribune is responding to customers’ increasing digital consumption by reinventing itself with an expanded digital platform complemented by a weekly digital edition.

- More breaking legal news and investigative reporting around the state
- Coverage of court hearings and trials
- Analysis and litigation trends
