The Legal Era Magazine is rated Asia’s top law magazine and 5th in the world. And that’s not all. We also present its digital counterpart – an online newspaper.

Born online in 2009 as with the motto ‘by the people, for the people, and of the people,’ this online newspaper has become a one-stop-shop for dedicated business intelligence on the legal industry delivered through accurate news reporting, insight analysis, and scientific trend forecasts.

The extremely popular Legal Era Magazine saw its first print release in 2010, and since then, it has been serving the global legal fraternity as a unique and dedicated monthly channel capturing content that matters. Name it and it’s there - legal news, views, policy developments, in-depth editorials, expert articles, interviews with eminent legal and corporate personalities, legal trivia, and judgment analyses.

Now there are many magazines in the legal field. But what makes Legal Era stand out? Why was

Legal Era Magazine recently declared Asia’s Number One? Why did we rank as the World’s Number Five (an honour we share with The American Lawyers’ Magazine USA and The Lawyers UK) legal magazine amid stiff international competition?

We believe that sticking to our fundamentals has helped the publication thrive. Our USPs are freshness of thought, diversity, global appeal, and the sheer range and depth of content that captivates our audiences.

We believe in the power of networking and dialogue. We achieve that through our professionally-organized conferences and events.

One of our objectives is to promote dialogue between lawyers via global conferences. However, we know that conducting successful conferences is an art and requires focused effort. Hence, we have a specialized department dedicated to conference management services in legal, finance, and intellectual property.

Legal Era is the only organization from India to have held an Indo-Asian Law Conclave in Singapore (2012), a Legal Era Conclave in London (2016 and 2017), and Legal Era Conclave in Washington DC (2018 and 2019). The latter saw speakers from 25 countries.

With years of experience in organizing 85+ international conferences and exhibitions in the US, the UK, Singapore, Africa, India, and recently the Middle East, our events have become known in the industry for their professionalism, slick promotions, and a designed approach to work.

Such events provide unprecedented opportunities for international networking and professional growth as lawyers meet, connect, and debate. They join several unique knowledge-sharing forums, actively engage in compelling matters of worldwide interest and relevance, gather quality and specialist information on different legal aspects, and tackle challenges facing the community as a whole.

Learning is a constant process. Consistent collaboration is a necessity. We make sure we enable that at a granular level, unconditionally, all the time.

To constantly stay alive to our mission to share knowledge and invite collaboration, we go beyond conferences to regularly organize study tours, round-table discussions, seminars, exhibitions, dialogues and discussions. All these engagements not only disseminate critical business intelligence to a rapidly growing corporate world, but also bridge the gap between makers and followers of policy, regulators and industry, and lawyers and laymen.

In the last few years, we have placed even greater thrust on such engagements.

And in the new normal era, where people are feeling disconnected, isolated, and are missing the feeling of belongingness, our emphasis on such networking and interactive engagements is only set to become more relevant than ever. The medium may turn to virtual, the format will change, but the essence remains the same.

Recognition is a basic human need and one of the biggest motivators. We recognize hard work. We award talent.

The Legal Era Awards, a formidable name in the industry, has been recognizing legal finesse, innovation, and accomplishments in the legal fraternity since 2011. The awardees include individual lawyers, corporate legal teams, and law firms.

Apart from that, we have been instituting year-after-year a range of one-of-a-kind awards such as the Indian Legal Awards, Global Intellectual Property Awards, 40 Under 40 Rising Star Awards, Global Achievers’ Awards, Legal Education Awards, and the Global Intellectual Property  Awards.
