Welcome to CLIG

Since 1976 the City Legal Information Group (CLIG) has been supporting legal information professionals in and around London. We regularly organise topical and social events with the aim of helping information professionals network and share their thoughts and experiences.

From small beginnings, we have now grown to a large membership, representing all sectors of the profession. If you are a legal information professional, please take a look at our current events calendar and membership benefits. Our membership fee is very modest and we offer a lot in return.
