Microjuris.com, a company dedicated to providing legal intelligence and state-of-the-art search and education solutions, recently partnered with the Puerto Rico Chapter of the Federal Bar Association to expand services, officials announced.

“This groundbreaking agreement will allow us to expand our array of services and to bring direct benefits to all attorneys who practice federal law in Puerto Rico,” said Andrés W. López, president of the FBA’s Puerto Rico chapter.

Both organizations are focused on improving federal practice in Puerto Rico.

During the second quarter of this year, the partners expect to produce the first continuing legal education course for both the traditional classroom environment as well as for the Microjuris.com online CLE platform.

“We’re committed to supporting the FBA’s local chapter in publishing case summaries and in producing CLE courses. These are only the first initiatives as we see many possibilities for further collaboration and ‘raising the bar’ for federal practitioners in Puerto Rico,” said Miguel Marxuach, CEO of Microjuris.com

The first District Court case summaries will be published in the “Microjuris.com al Día” legal news blog starting this month, along with corresponding alerts via Twitter and Facebook.

Other immediate benefits to all FBA-PR members in good standing include: free access to the District Court Opinions Collection via Intellisearch, the Microjuris.com proprietary search system, and to the personalized Microjuris.com SherLAWck email alert service.

SherLAWck allows each member to stay up-to-date regarding Puerto Rico laws and regulations as well as Puerto Rico Supreme Court opinions with a personalized profile feature tailored to practice areas of interest, the company said.
