Join Us

Any public body can join EM LawShare if you are in the East or West Midlands or South Yorkshire. If you are outside these areas you will still be able to join if the management panel agrees. However we cannot accept members from outside of England and Wales.

Joining EM LawShare is straightforward and free. All we need is a request from your Chief Legal Officer (or similar post holder). Please complete the form below or email, with the names, titles and contact details of those officers who are authorised to place instructions with the partner firms. Click here to email your request.

Once your request is accepted, you will be sent a memorandum of understanding to sign and return to Nottinghamshire County Council, the consortium’s lead authority. You will then be sent a members pack with all the information you will need, including details of the partner firms’ hourly rates, main contacts and added value offer, along with your user name and password to start using the secure members only website. You will also receive details of the training programme of over 40 free courses.
