The Web site of law firm Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice has been named Best Legal Web Site in the Web Marketing Association’s annual WebAward competition. The award judges Web sites using an Internet Standards Assessment Report based on seven criteria: design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copywriting and ease of use.

Of interest, the Web Marketing Association said that legal Web sites rank slightly behind sites in other industries based on the overall ISAR scores. While legal sites generally score well in ease of use, content, copywriting and design, they score lowest in technology and innovation.
