LexisNexis, a leading global provider of content-enabled workflow solutions, announced that the National Association of Women Lawyers, an organization devoted to promoting the interests and progress of women lawyers and women's legal rights, is the latest legal organization to join the®Connected Alliance Partner Program. As an Alliance Partner, NAWL is creating an online community within Connected to promote discussion and collaboration on issues affecting women lawyers. As the largest global online network exclusively for the legal community, Connected provides a targeted audience of lawyers and other legal professionals who are uniquely qualified to address these issues.

"Our decision to become a Connected Alliance Partner follows earlier collaborative efforts with LexisNexis," said Dorian Denburg, president, National Association of Women Lawyers. "Late last year, we co-hosted a highly successful webinar within Connected in which we discussed findings of our latest Survey on Retention and Promotion of Women in Law Firms. Martindale. com Connected offers us a trusted, collaborative environment where our members can connect and engage with other women lawyers around the world who are interested in networking with each other and exchanging ideas and information critical to our success in the profession."

"Clearly, online networks have become a powerful and dynamic forum for exchanging ideas and information, and the NAWL adoption of Connected speaks volumes about its primacy as the platform of choice to foster this exchange among legal professionals," said Dawn Conway, senior vice president of Corporate Responsibility for LexisNexis. "We've been longstanding supporters of NAWL's successful Night of Giving events that offer networking opportunities to NAWL members and generate financial support for local charities. We're pleased to lend further support to NAWL by leveraging Connected as an effective, online complement to their live events and as a way to provide members with enhanced opportunities for professional networking and business development."
