Website Construction (CMS-Based)

Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, Drupal, or Weebly . A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
What We Have In Place
  • We'd like to do a major remodel of our legal news site, subscriptlaw.com.

    We currently use Squarespace, and we want to switch to WordPress, to get more customization and faster loading.

    We have a mockup of the homepage and will provide mocks of other pages as we get going.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to create more legal content for the site

We want to become a one-stop-shop for Supreme Court reporting and also drive traffic to our legal web design services.

Our Mission

Subscript is a nonprofit committed to enhancing the legal and political decision-making of Americans. We envision an American public that can fully understand current events, can advocate politically, and can think legally.

What We Do

We make legal concepts accessible to people by creating cool graphics. We also restructure the law so that people can learn it easily.

Our goal is to be THE common-reference website for all legal questions (in the same way you might visit Wikipedia for a fact question).
