Creating your online profile

For guidance on creating your esela profile, access the Membership Guide.

Accessing the member pages

Strategic Partner and Organisation members

Designated ‘Key Contacts’ for each Strategic Partner and Organisation member are entitled to access the member pages and content.

If you are the main point of contact for your company or firm’s membership, designate your key contacts by adding them to the esela Directory of Contacts. Step by step instructions are found in the Membership Guide.

Your Key Contacts will log into the esela member pages using your company login.

To give them access, share the username or email address, and the password for your company’s member account with them to enable login. You are advised to use a unique password which is changed periodically as well as at the time of any change in your designated Key Contacts.

While logged in the member account, Key Contacts may also update their personal key contact profile.

Please note that Individual members and Key Contacts are not permitted to disclose their login details to a third party.

Searching the members’ directory

The members’ directory is a resource for lawyers and others who are active in this space in different regions.

The directory is designed to facilitate connection to and among esela members. By creating your personal profile, you will be visible to other members as well to others who visit the site to find information about individuals within our network.

Make best use of your membership by keeping your personal esela profile up to date. Include a summary of your areas of expertise and experience, as well as your contact information, and link your personal esela profile directly to your organisation’s website.

For lawyers wishing to connect with a practitioner in a particular jurisdiction, use the Directory search function.

To contact an esela member, get in touch with them directly via the contact details on their profile, or contact esela if you would like us to facilitate an introduction.
