LexisNexis Launches Job Board Dedicated to Legal Jobs in Canada

Totallegaljobs.ca Simplifies Recruitment Process for Recruiters, Law Firms, and Job Seekers

Attention: Business/Financial Editor, News Editor, Tech/Telecomm Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 12, 2007) - LexisNexis Canada, a leading provider of information and services solutions, today introduced totallegaljobs.ca, the most comprehensive online job board for Canada's legal industry. The site offers fast, easy channels for employers to find qualified candidates, and for job seekers to access genuine legal job postings.

Totallegaljobs.ca features postings for all types of legal jobs, including articling positions, private practice lawyers, in-house counsel, patent agents, paralegals, law clerks, and legal research and professional support staff.

"Online recruitment is quick and cost effective," said Mike Pilmer, president and CEO, LexisNexis Canada. "Totallegaljobs.ca gives employers control over each step of the recruitment process. It also offers both recruiters and law firms many opportunities to promote themselves to job seekers." Employers can post, track, and edit jobs online using the time saving Administration system. This unique system lets employers create custom automated responses to job applicants, as well as conduct candidate searches.

Employers have several options for recruiting candidates:

* Post jobs. Advertise through a single job posting, or purchase a multi-pack bundle and take advantage of bulk pricing.
* Search the constantly refreshed résumé database for qualified legal professionals to shortlist.
* Effectively manage postings, applications, and candidates using the proprietary Administration system.
* Pre-screen candidates by adding parameters to searches of the résumé database or to job postings to ensure contact with only suited candidates.
* Build brand awareness by adding logos to job postings and company profiles. Employers can also place their logo on the home page as a "Featured Employer" or highlight key positions on the home page where more job seekers will see them.

"Job seekers enjoy significant benefits as well," said Pilmer. "Unlike a traditional job site, totallegaljobs.ca is devoted to legal industry jobs only, and allows legal professionals to find relevant postings faster and more easily." Registration is free for all job seekers. Totallegaljobs.ca will be promoted through extensive print advertising in selected national and regional legal publications to drive job seekers to the site and maximize the number of candidates viewing the job postings.

Job seekers also have many options for finding a new position:

* Search by region, position, firm name, and industry for all job postings on the site.
* Upload a résumé to the database, where recruiters will search for qualified candidates.
* Create a personal profile describing skills, work experience, and area of law to assist recruiters.
* Register for Job Alerts to learn about jobs of interest as soon as they are posted.

Totallegaljobs.ca is part of LexisNexis Canada's growing suite of Total Practice Solutions, including award-winning Practice Management services and tools proven to improve firm productivity and profitability. The job board is currently available in English, with a French-language version coming soon. For more information or to register, please visit http://www.totallegaljobs.ca.
