Digital Law Directory 

Following member feedback and a decision by the Law Society Council, the Law Directory is now available as a free digital service to members on your mobile phone or tablet.

The digital version contains all the same practitioner details and resources as the printed Law Directory, and will reflect any status and firm changes as soon as they are saved to our system.

Now we have a digital Law Directory, printed versions will only be sent to those who opt in to receive it. Opt-ins for 2021 are now closed.
