My favorite review of ‘The Legal List’ from 1995.
Twenty years ago today, my book “The Legal List” was acknowledged as a “Top 5%” site by Point Communications, which was later acquired by Lycos. The Lycos Top 5% archives, like many old web pages, have fallen victim to linkrot, something that few of us on the web at that time every imagined would happen.
I did save HTML versions of the review, and I have been able to cobble together a screenshot of what the web page looked like (minus the background image and the Ford ad):
And here is the original review, using the original HTML:
The Legal List
An absolutely mind-boggling resource for Internet legal eagles, this online “book” by Erik J. Heels offers a briefcase full of law-related government, educational and corporate links. Legal resources in all 50 states, plus an amazing variety of resources from Jewish law professors to Kansas attorneys. Not incredibly exciting, mind you; just relentlessly complete.

For the record, here are the links I tried:
- Wayback: homepage of pointcom.com (pre-Lycos)
- Wayback: homepage of point.lycos.com (post-Lycos)
- Wayback: Point Review: Law and Government Index (missing)
- Wayback: Point Review: The Legal List (missing)
Maybe somebody out there has an archive of the Point Top 5% reviews. Until then, this page will have to suffice. At least for me.
