Why can I claim an existing profile as a barrister?
Juriosity is a professional legal knowledge network in association with the Bar Council. We have used their membership data to create profiles for 18,000 barristers and chambers in order to simplify the registration and verification of new accounts. These profiles will be inactive until they are claimed and our thorough verification process ensures profiles can only be claimed by their rightful owner.
Step 1: Go to the directory
Search for your unclaimed profile in the directory. You can do this by searching:
- For your name
- Your chambers
Step 2: Results Page
On the results page, you will be able to add some additional filters and search again.
Once you have found your profile, click on your name.
Step 3: Claim your Profile
If the profile has not been claimed, you will be able to do so. Simply click on the Claim your Profile button.
Step 4: Verify your identity
You will be asked to verify your identity using the email address registered with your chambers or the Bar Council. Once supplied, a verification email will be sent.
If you don't have access to this email address, select the the applicable button to continue with the registration process. You will be asked for some additional information. Within 3 working days we will check your supplied information and verify your profile. You will be notified by email when this is complete although you can begin using the site immediately.
Step 5: Check your inbox
Check your inbox and for the verification email. If it's not there, you can ask for the verification email to be resent. It is also worth checking your spam box and refreshing your email. Click on the button to Verify email address.
Step 6: Create your password
Once you have verified your email, you will be asked to create a password. Please follow our password rules to create a valid password. Once you have created a password you are registered!
