Harvard Law School (HLS) had a problem. They had amazing, high quality news content being created daily by the school that was not only getting lost quickly after it was published on the home page, but publishing it in the first place was a labor-intensive chore. Their old CMS didn’t publish in real-time, had no tagging functionality, and was neither mobile-friendly nor particularly accessible. And those were just a few of the problems.
This case study will address how a small department with limited resources moved to WordPress and become a proof of concept for redesigning and migrating the entire HLS site, helping to shape the whole school’s online strategy.
