About PLC

"PLC has helped me to practice more efficiently, enabling me to make better use of my most significant professional asset, my time."

Quite simply, our job is to make you better at yours. Whether practicing in-house or at a firm, lawyers at all levels are under the same pressures. Working smarter and faster is critical.

We took the traditional legal publishing model, threw it out the window and started from scratch. Our online services clearly and efficiently address the challenges faced by lawyers of every level, background and expertise. And we should know. Our team is made up of lawyers with significant practice experience at the world's leading law firms and in-house departments.

Practical Law Company represents the best of what we all wished we had when we were in your shoes.


We create and maintain a wide range of up-to-date, practical resources to ensure you have exactly what you need, exactly when you need it. We are not a "just in case" publisher. We are a "just in time" solution.

We go beyond primary law and research. We take the expertise of our team and distill it in a way that actually helps you get your work done. Nobody in the US does what we do. Period.

Our primary offerings support both law firms and law departments and we also provide a free law school program to prepare students for the realities of practice.

Practical Law Company's legal know-how offers law firms and law departments resources that address the needs for improved efficiency and client service. The illustration below shows how Practical Law occupies a unique position within the value and information chain to help frontline lawyers work smarter and faster.


How Do Subscriptions Work?

The goal of our service is for you to use it. We do not believe in the traditional "metered" approach. Stay on our site 24/7. Print and search as much as you like. All resources in your selected service are included in one annual subscription fee. And all for a fraction of what it would cost you (in time and money) to build these materials internally.

Free Trials, Free Training

The best way for you to experience PLC is to try it. We offer free individual trials as well as trials for entire law firms and in-house departments. All trials come with full support and training as well as a subscription to Practical Law The Journal – the companion to our online service.
