In April 2015, the Legal Marketing Association (LMA) partnered with the top-level domain ".law" to provide LMA members the opportunity to submit an early expression of interest for “.law” domains before the ".law" domains were generally available. Names in the .law domain are now available for sale to credentialed legal practitioners as of Oct. 12, 2015. More information on the .law launch program is available at http://nic.law.
Owned by Minds + Machines, the ".law" top-level domain is dedicated to lawyers and law firms worldwide. The new domain offers lawyers an alternative to the overpopulated and unregulated “.com” domain. These domains are available exclusively for lawyers and law firms and each lawyer registering a .law domain will be verified.
What is .law?
.law is a new top-level domain dedicated to lawyers and law firms worldwide. This new domain offers lawyers an alternative to the overpopulated and unregulated .com domain.
A .law domain name provides lawyers with the opportunity to secure not only their name or their firm's name, but also the ability to purchase great premium domains (e.g., newyork.law or dui.law) available for the first time. Registering a .law domain name is as simple as registering any other domain name. Each lawyer registering for a .law domain will be verified and only current lawyers are able to purchase a .law domain.
Because of the strict criteria for the .law top-level domain, users on the Internet will know they are dealing with real lawyers - not a phising site, not a lead-gen company, nor any of the kinds of sites that exist in other top-level domains where there is no validation of credentials.
Standards names are $200 per year, and premium names pricing begins at $530 per year.
Expression of Interest - EOI
You are able to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI), and, if no other EOI has been made for that domain name and if the name is not otherwise reserved or registered according to Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) policies, the applicant will usually be able to buy that name. If more than one applicant applies for the same name, all the applicants for that name will be sent an email and invited to participate in an auction.
