Lawyers Journal, Pittsburgh Legal Journal, ACBA Legal Directory and Sidebar e-newsletter

Looking to target market to Pittsburgh area attorneys? Partnering with the Allegheny County Bar Association is the best way to get your product or service in front of the Pittsburgh legal community.

Attorneys comprise one of the largest – and most successful – professional demographics in the Pittsburgh region. The vast majority of Western Pennsylvania legal professionals – nearly 6,000 lawyers and judges – are members of the ACBA. Our ACBA partners have the opportunity to not only connect with these lawyers, but to do so through the region’s most trusted legal source: the Allegheny County Bar Association.

Lawyers Journal

Our flagship publication, the Lawyers Journal is the best way to target the entire Pittsburgh legal community. A distinctive, widely-read legal newspaper, the Lawyers Journal is distributed every-other week to every member of the ACBA. Along with essential features, interviews and scholarly articles of interest to the Pittsburgh legal community, the Lawyers Journal is both a newspaper and a periodical reference work. The publication is available both in print and online, meaning the content – and ads – are not only viewed at the time of publication, but also months or years later when attorneys read the publication’s archives for research purposes.

Purchasing a native advertising package with the ACBA increases the chance that your target audience will read and digest the information you are trying to share about your organization.
