Jim Romenesko has the memo to the staff disclosing that California Lawyer magazine is closing down today — as in immediately with all staff let go. The October issue would be the final one. There's no word about the magazine closing on its website or Twitter feed. California Lawyer is a Daily Journal publication based in the Bay Area.

At 9:30 this morning a representative from the Daily Journal Corporation announced to staff that CALIFORNIA LAWYER would cease publication in the print and digital editions, as of the October issue.


Termination for all staff is immediate, as of September 30, 2015. At the close of work today our dailyjournal.com email will no longer function.
