OBA Newsstand: Free Benefit to Provide Daily Legal News Updates

We'd like to introduce the latest OBA member benefit, OBA Newsstand – a daily newsfeed with practice-specific news, curated in partnership with Lexology. With OBA Newsstand, you’ll receive valuable news and information from a wide range of global and national agencies and firms, targeted to the areas of law you are most interested in.

Lexology delivers the most comprehensive source of international legal updates, analysis and insights. More than 450 articles are published every day from over 900 leading law firms and service providers worldwide across 50 work areas in 25 languages.

The searchable archive contains more than one million articles. The combination of timely, quality, granular information and relevant insight supported by Lexology’s intuitive, innovative technology provides an unparalleled user experience.

Lexology will set up a unique stream of content mapped to your practice areas based on OBA section and committee memberships. You will be signed up to receive just U.S. news, but you have the option to expand your content to include international content.

“Investing a few moments to customize this service to focus on your particular interests is the path to turn this from a good service to an outstanding one,” said Jim Calloway, OBA Management Assistance Program director. “Begin by focusing on a few subjects of importance to you so the update will be shorter in length. You can add more areas later.”

To remove or add areas of interest or jurisdictions once the service is launched in January, you’ll request an emailed code to access your account page. All changes must be made on the Lexology site. Your personal data will remain confidential at all times.

There’s no need to sign up to receive emails; you’ll receive this service free of charge as part of your OBA membership. You will receive no more than one daily newsfeed of current legal analysis. You are free to change your settings or cancel your subscription at any time.


Fastcase has launched COVID-19 Case Alerts, a free email alert service to keep subscribers aware of new civil opinions, selected pleadings, breaking news and analyses of legal issues related to the coronavirus pandemic. The service is free to Fastcase subscribers who, like you, receive their Fastcase service through their bar association. For others, the service is $295 per year. OBA members can subscribe to the COVID-19 Case Alerts by logging in to Fastcase through MyOKBar and clicking on Apps & Tools, then clicking the link to the free subscription sign-up page to receive the email alerts. More information is available from the Fastcase blog at https://www.fastcase.com/blog/fastcase-providing-covid-19-legal-developments-via-email/.
