The Law Council of Australia (Law Council) is the peak national representative body of the Australian legal profession, representing 65,000 Australian lawyers through their Bar Associations, Law Societies and Law Firms Australia (the Constituent Bodies).
A challenge for the Law Council was there are five sections of the Council as well as the overarching governing body. This meant that content was coming from all the sections and required a diplomatic way of offering real estate on the homepage.
The Bond team came up with some very clever ways of handling this and the result is a self-curating content system where items from the different sections all get fed through the Latest Items panel, then below is a ‘trending items’ which pulls out items of interest that users have been viewing via the site recently.
Considering the vast amount of content and resources, the Law Council website also has a very sophisticated asset management system which enables resources to be highly categorised so the user can use the search panel to simply start typing what they are looking for, and Google-esque, they will get suggested items that could be website pages, resources (PDF’s etc) from the asset library, or URL links off to relevant content.
