Webbys Win for Glasgow Law News Team

A former media correspondent on the Sunday Herald is celebrating the website he works on being chosen among the best in the world.

Matthew Magee provides a weekly podcast for a legal news and information service run by a Glasgow law practice.

OUT-LAW.com is owned by Pinsent Masons LLP and it has been named Best Law Website at the Webbys, considered to be the ‘Oscars’ of the internet.

The site, operated from Glasgow, covers UK, European and US news. It is understood to be the first non-US legal site to receive the title in the Webbys’ 12-year history.

Says Chris Mullen, senior partner at Pinsent Masons: “When we launched OUT-LAW eight years ago, it was a bold concept, especially from a law firm. We are thrilled to see that it has gone from strength to strength and remains a leading and unique online resource which sets Pinsent Masons apart from other law firms. The site is hugely popular and it is very gratifying to receive a Webby for what we do.”
