                    .LAW  (coming soon)



.LAW is a highly regulated Top Level Domain (TLD) that we are preparing for release in the near future. We hope you will check back with us, but for now you may wish to review the summary below of requirements governing this authoritative TLD.   

The .LAW TLD aims to promote trust in the professional legal community by creating exclusive online spaces in which Qualified Lawyers and Authorized Legal Institutions (i.e., law firms, law schools), Legal Regulators (ie. bar associations and courts of law) can present themselves in a distinctive and memorable manner.

The .LAW TLD will offer domain names only to those verified applicants who satisfy the Eligibility Criteria as set out in the .LAW Eligibility Policy. The strict Eligibility Criteria are applied through a verification process that enhances the integrity of this TLD. As the .LAW TLD is open to registrations from anywhere in the world, what constitutes a Qualified Lawyer or Authorized Legal Institution may vary between jurisdictions. For this reason, the Registry for .LAW reserves the right to ask, including through its verification agent, for any further proof of eligibility it considers appropriate and to exercise its complete discretion in the verification of registrants to ensure that the spirit of the Eligibility Criteria is met.
