Not much competes with the value of simple information exchange. At MAJ, members pose questions on specialized topics to an audience made exclusively of fellow trial lawyers. "The MAJ listservers have often been described as the best and most inexpensive expert available. With over 1,300 members monitoring the general listserver, plus many specialty listservers, it is rare for a question to ever go unanswered," says John J. Cord, of John Cord Law, LLC, in Timonium, Maryland. "Every lawyer can save time by using the listserver as the first stop for research, sample documents, up-to-date news, and a second legal opinion."
