Registrant Eligibility Requirements and Use
In order to be eligible to register (and continue to be a registrant of) a domain name in .LAW, the registrant must be a Qualified Lawyer. For the purposes of this Eligibility Policy, a Qualified Lawyer is a professional who is licensed to practice law by an approved regulator of legal services in a given jurisdiction.
A Qualified Lawyer must be identifiable as a currently licensed practitioner in the public records kept by the relevant approved regulator. Therefore, using a registrar proxy or privacy service or any other service having an equivalent effect are prohibited.
More information on the eligibility criteria for registering a .LAW domain may be found here.

Domains can be registered in Real-Time with the API AddDomain command.
command = AddDomain domain = (DOMAIN)
ownercontact0 = (CONTACT) admincontact0 = (CONTACT) techcontact0 = (CONTACT) billingcontact0 = (CONTACT) nameserver0 = (NAMESERVER) nameserver1 = (NAMESERVER) x-law-accept-highly-regulated-tac = 1
x-registrant-qualified-lawyer-accreditation-id = (ACCREDITATION-ID) x-registrant-qualified-lawyer-accreditation-body = (ACCREDITATION-BODY) x-registrant-qualified-lawyer-accreditation-year = (ACCREDITATION-YEAR) x-registrant-qualified-lawyer-jurisdiction-cc = (COUNTRYCODE) x-registrant-qualified-lawyer-jurisdiction-state = (STATE) auth = (TEXT) | (NULL) period = (PERIOD) transferlock = 0 | 1 | (NULL)
The transfer has to be initiated by the gaining registrar and can be requested with the API TransferDomain command.
A valid Authorization Code must be provided to initiate a transfer successfully. You may obtain the authorization code from the losing registrar.
As soon as a domain transfer has been initiated it can either be approved ("ACK") by Registrar or denied ("NACK") by Registrar.
command = TransferDomain domain = (DOMAIN)
auth = (TEXT)
period = (PERIOD) transferlock = 0 | 1 | (NULL) action = REQUEST | APPROVE | DENY | CANCEL | USERTRANSFER
command = DeleteDomain domain = (DOMAIN)
Restores can be processed in realtime. A restore is possible within 45 days upon deletion. Please use the command RestoreDomain.
command = RestoreDomain domain = (DOMAIN)
subuser = (TEXT) renewalmode = (NULL) | (TEXT)
All contact information with the exception of registrant Name, Firstname and Organisation can be updated through the ModifyDomain command.
In order to change the owner you have to request a trade with the TradeDomain command. This can be done through our web interface or through our API:
command = TradeDomain domain = <DOMAIN> ownercontact0 = <CONTACT>
A Change of Registrar with the simultaneous change in the Registrant is not possible. Please be aware that domain name must be already managed by us. If the domain is currently managed by another registrar there are two possibilities:
1.) first step: transfer the domain to us, second step: trade the domain with us.
2.) first step: trade the domain with the current registrar, second step: transfer the domain to us.
command = ModifyDomain domain = (DOMAIN)
ownercontact0 = (CONTACT) x-law-accept-highly-regulated-tac = 1
X-LAW-ACCEPT-HIGHLY-REGULATED-TAC=1: The confirmation that the registrant is qualified to register a .LAW domain by meeting the eligibility criteria (provided here) and that they guarantee that the information provided for their registration is true and accurate.
Additionally the following information is optional, and will no longer be required as of January 7th, 2019:
x-registrant-qualified-lawyer-accreditation-id = (ACCREDITATION-ID)
x-registrant-qualified-lawyer-accreditation-body = (ACCREDITATION-BODY)
x-registrant-qualified-lawyer-accreditation-year = (ACCREDITATION-YEAR)
x-registrant-qualified-lawyer-jurisdiction-cc = (COUNTRYCODE)
x-registrant-qualified-lawyer-jurisdiction-state = (STATE)
There are special requirements regarding the format of the authorization code. Please consider the following restrictions, if you want to assign a new authorization code to a domain:
- Minimum 8 characters
- having at least one (1) numeric,
- one (1) alphabetic, and
- one (1) special character
You may generate a valid random auth code by adding this parameter to the ModifyDomain command:
command = ModifyDomain domain = (DOMAIN)
generaterandomauth = 1
