Law List Law and Legal Definition

Law list refers to a publication compiling the names and addresses of persons engaged in advocacy. It contains information of interest to the legal profession. Most of the law lists include: description of various courts, court calendar, public officers, important judicial offices, and abstracts of law.

“Law list is not reputable if its management or contents are likely to be misleading or injurious to the public or to the profession. A law list or any directory is conclusively established to be reputable if it is certified by the American Bar Association as being in compliance with its rules and standards. [Hester v. Martindale-Hubbell, Inc., 659 F.2d 433, 434 (4th Cir. 1981)]
