Be the first to know, sign up for the News' RSS service.

To help keep Florida lawyers informed about news and events that impact the profession, selected Florida Bar News articles are available through an RSS feed.

RSS is a technology that allows Web sites to automatically deliver updated information directly to your computer. RSS stands for "rich site summary" and is a format for syndicating news and other information.

RSS feeds are free content delivered from Web sites that contain article headlines, summaries, and links back to full-text articles on the Web. It is an easy way for users to be alerted when content that interests them appears on their favorite sites. Instead of visiting a particular site to browse for new articles, RSS automatically alerts you when something new is posted online.

"The RSS component to our traditional twice-a-month publication enhances our ability to quickly deliver news, columns, and other information that may help advance the education, competence, and ethical practice of Florida lawyers," said News Managing Editor Mark Killian. "It's particularly helpful to get information to our members quickly during the legislative sessions when news breaks between the regular cycle of our print editions."

To start using RSS to receive News stories, you need a special news reader aggregator that displays RSS content feeds from Web sites you select. To download a free RSS Reader, go to www.rssreader.com/. Click on the download icon on the left navigation bar and follow the instructions to install on your PC.

Once you have downloaded and installed the RSS reader software, there will be an icon on your desktop. You can double click on the icon to open the reader and begin adding RSS feeds to your reader software
