About Sponsored Links on this site

Home... Lawyers... Individuals... Companies... Students... Search... About... Welcome... Courses... Newsletter

This site provides a comprehensive set of links to useful legal resources, designed to be of use to the legal community in the UK and Ireland. It was set up in 1995 and is still going strong as one of the very few independent legal web sites. There are more details about the site and about me here.

Until about 5 years ago, I did not accept advertising or sponsorship of any kind. However, I now feel that a modest number of sponsored links are acceptable to most viewers and, quite honestly, it is rather nice to be generating income from the site! However, it will always be completely clear which entries are sponsored links. There is some information about the preparation of the adverts (which I can assist you with) at the end of this page, here.

Many of the positions described below are taken for the time being, but I operate a waiting list so you can establish yourself in the queue for a particular type of vacancy - contact me on delia@venables.co.uk.

Select the type of advertising you are interested in from the list below..

"We get some lovely referrals from you Delia so I am very happy!".
Black Knight Associates provide software to enable a law firm to create a series of fully interactive questionnaires; the end result is a bespoke advice note, designed by the lawyer, that a client can pay for and download. Lawyers can see daily figures showing the numbers of new clients being advised by the firm. Terry Lindon said:-
"Since advertising on the Venables site, enquiries from Lawyers have increased threefold resulting in many new clients for Black Knight Associates."
Emma Rae of TikitTFB, supplier of leading practice management software Partner for Windows, said:
"We have just finished our first year of advertising on the site and we are really pleased with the performance of the ads. The Venables site has consistently ranked in our top 10 referrer websites."
Patrick Carmody of Perfect Software providing legal software for the smaller firm including Legal Accounting and Management and Legal Time Recording software said:-

David Gilroy, who runs Conscious Solutions providing websites, marketing, CRM & intranets for the legal sector said:-
"We have been advertising on this web site for over a year. The acquisition cost per client is bang on track with our marketing plan and the campaign has given us great exposure to a wide range of prospective clients."
Sue Gray, Director of leading chambers 1KBW (1 King's Bench Walk), when asked if she would like to continue with advertising for a further year, said:-
"A most emphatic yes please! This is excellent advertising at a very reasonable cost."
Tim Kevan, original co-founder of CPD Webinars Ltd, barrister and author of BabyBarista and the Art of War said:-
"Delia Venables' legal information website is in my view the most authoratitive compendium of law sites in the country and we have therefore been proud to support it since she first suggested sponsorship."


Preparation of adverts

Note that the actual sponsored link can be along any of these lines:
  1. A text based advert, possibly with logos included, where I prepare the advert (see most of the adverts on the Bar page and the Firms page).

  2. The company provide a complete banner advert for me to use (all the adverts on the Software page).

  3. The company set up a banner advert on THEIR site and I "pull in" the advert (none at present - but it can be useful if you want the advert to change frequently).
Please contact me if you would like to discuss any variations on these three themes!
