About Datalaw

We are a company absolutely determined to bring the most flexible and price sensitive services to other solicitors. Our company was started by two solicitors who were tired of paying large amounts for training.


We were desperate to find an alternative to the old fashioned expensive training model. Once broadband became more reliable, we saw an opportunity to bring low cost quality CPD training delivered over the internet. We wanted to bring legal training straight to your computer or mobile phone, so you could watch them whenever and wherever you were.
