Why have you been sent a password reset email?

Because we recently made updates to our systems, you are required to reset your password for security purposes. We sent an email out to the email address on your ADLS account at 10:30am on Monday 29 May. This email is not spam. Please follow the instructions in the email to reset your password. You can call us on our dedicated helpline 09 871 1385 or on our usual number 09 303 5270.

What if your password is pre-populating when you go to reset it?

If you are resetting your password, and your browser is prepopulating with a different password, delete out the old password and type in a new one. The system does not allow for you to reset your password with a pre-populated one.

To ensure speedy assistance regarding recent system updates, we have created a dedicated phone line staffed by a dedicated team to assist you. You can email us on our dedicated email address of helpdesk@adls.org.nz or call us on our dedicated line 09 871 1385

Membership

Has Membership pricing changed?

We have simplified the number of pricing groups to Member and Non-Member only.

A firm pricing structure has been introduced based on the number of lawyers in a firm which is valid for the 12-month renewal period.  During this period, no matter how many lawyers join your firm, they are entitled to ADLS membership until the next renewal period. 

This is a fixed charge for the period of membership regardless of growth/decline of lawyer numbers for that membership period.
