NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 5, 2007) - SelectMinds, Inc., the leading provider of Corporate Social Networking solutions, today extended congratulations to client Goodwin Procter LLP on being named a winner in the 2007 "Your Honor" awards. Presented by the Legal Marketing Association, the "Your Honor" Awards recognize creativity, execution, achievement and overall excellence in legal marketing and communications.

Goodwin Procter was named first place winner in the "Online Alumni Network" category, based on the creativity and ongoing success of its Alumni Network. Goodwin Procter LLP is one of the nation's leading law firms with offices in Boston, Los Angeles, New York, San Diego, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

The Goodwin Procter Alumni Network was launched in January 2007 to help the firm attract talent and generate new business opportunities by offering its lawyers and alumni the opportunity to establish relationships and share information. Since its launch, registration for the network has exceeded initial expectations and feedback from alumni has been overwhelmingly positive. Additional increases in efficiencies and new business opportunities have been reported across the organization as well.

"Our Alumni Network provides our alumni, attorneys, senior staff and clients with a sophisticated tool to share opportunities and knowledge," said Scott Westfahl, director of professional development, Goodwin Procter. "Over the years, our departing attorneys have always stressed that what they will miss most about Goodwin Procter is our extraordinary people. Thanks to our Alumni Network, our alumni can remain connected to us and to each other. We are delighted to receive this honor, and thank the SelectMinds team for providing the technology and Corporate Social Networking experience that is critical to our Alumni Network's success."
