Drupal/DLAW: Where Are We Now

About 20% of legal services websites use the open source Drupal website content management system. This session's panelists will provide updates on several Drupal projects. Mary, Steve, and Abhijeet will present the latest version of DLAW, the open source template based on Drupal. DLAW provides a recommended statewide website configuration, National Subject Matter Index integration, pre-built themes, and many other useful features. Gwen will talk about Illinois Legal Aid Online's work to convert its four websites to a single Drupal 7 instance. She will share the lessons learned and how other states can take advantage of their work in the coming months. Brian will discuss new features developed for Stateside Legal and other LSC Drupal sites as well as a look at a survey project in Drupal.
