LAW STREET NAMED TOP COMPANY TO WATCH IN 2015
NEW YORK and WASHINGTON, January 7, 2015. Law Street is proud to announce its inclusion as a top company to watch in 2015 in Publishers Weekly’s “Survival Test: Startup Review of 2015.” The publication highlighted Law Street’s successful first year of significant growth in a field that saw a “host of startups fade away.”
“One year in, Law Street has become best known for its annual Crime in America rankings, which rate cities based on crime levels, as well as its law school specialty rankings and a wealth of unparalleled issues briefs, which…are the ‘gateway to research for students of all levels.'”
Law Street is lauded for its successful vision, focusing on Mobile, Millennials, and Open Access. The rapidly growing company’s audience is more than 50 percent millennials, over 70 percent Mobile, and it reaches hundreds of thousands of users each month.

“Law- and legal-policy startup Law Street Media (LawStreetMedia.com) launched at the end of 2013, with an offering based on 100% user-generated original content, including news, opinion, backgrounders, and splashy graphics to explain important public-policy issues. And the startup, founded by journalist John A. Jenkins, president and publisher emeritus of CQ Press, is based on the idea that the future belongs to “mobile, millennials, and open access.” Jenkins says that early results are proving his vision right: millennials make up more than half of Law Street’s audience, mobile use is over 70%, and the site is reaching hundreds of thousands of users each month. One year in, Law Street has become best known for its annual “Crime in America” rankings, which rate cities based on crime levels, as well as its law school specialty rankings and a wealth of unparalleled issues briefs, which, Jenkins says, are “the gateway to research for students of all levels.” In year two, the focus will shift to monetizing its growing audience: Law Street is seeking venture-capital funding, and it is moving forward with its planned expansion into native advertising and partnerships with universities, libraries, and media companies.”
Law Street is an open-access web-based media platform covering law and public policy.
