PITTSBURGH, September 29, 2010 – The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the nation’s oldest legal newspaper, The Legal Intelligencer, announced today that they have formed a partnership to provide readers in Pittsburgh with a print and online legal news section, published every Monday in the Post-Gazette. Beginning on October 4, the weekly section will feature bylined legal news and analysis from both publications, plus an original “Intelligencer” column, written by the editors and senior reporters of The Legal Intelligencer.
“With three out of four legal professionals in Allegheny County reading the Post-Gazette in print or online each week, we feel that this section will be of great interest to our readers. We are proud to have partnered with The Legal Intelligencer, a true leader and expert in covering the legal community,” said Christopher H. Chamberlain, president of the Post-Gazette.
