The New Foley's List Website

The new Foley’s List website provides a modern design and makes it even easier for website visitors to find the information they need in order to engage the right Barrister for their requirements, including the following features:

  • My List – the visitor can add Barristers of interest to build a short list. From their My List, accessed at any time from the top navigation, the visitor can email the list to the email address they enter, print the list, or save it as a PDF.
  • Barrister Search – backed by the VicBar data, but implemented to provide superior search performance, the visitor can type in parts of the names of barristers, or search through practice areas. Having searched, the visitor can then filter the results by a range of options including seniority, gender and sub-practice areas.
  • Site-wide Searching – through the one search function, a visitor can now search through barristers, CPD resources, and web pages.
  • Enhanced Barrister Profiles – when browsing a barrister profile, the visitor will see CPD resources published by that barrister through the Foley’s List website, and can click through to read the publication, further helping to establish the expertise of the barrister. The profiles also include updated photographs of our barristers. Barrister phone numbers can be clicked to make an immediate phone call straight from the web page.
  • Enhanced CPD Resources – when viewing a particular CPD resource, you can now access the resource in a variety of formats, from the one page. The author names link through to the relevant barrister profile for your easy reference. As a service to the industry all our CPD resources are free and don’t require any form of registration.
