LIANS’ new website and member portal launched in July 2023. With this update, you are now required to log in to submit an online claim report and review your mandatory insurance policy. LIANS Board and all other LIANS Committee members will now access their meeting materials by logging in as well.
We moved our online claim report behind the login because we have been seeing an increase in online submissions by individuals imitating lawyers – imitating you – but not disclosing who they really are and alleging things against lawyers and others with whom they have no relationship and for lack of any other reason, do not like or disagree with. These matters are nonsense but they do take up our time.
Non-lawyers are still be able to report a claim against a lawyer. However, they are not able to submit our online claim report. Rather, their process is to use a designated email form that requires the submitter’s name, email address and contact information. If the person’s full contact information is not provided when making the submission, we do not respond to it. We do not accept claim reports from insured lawyers via this link – you do have to provide the usual online report.
To create your login, click the Member Login link at the top centre of any webpage, then click Membership Request. You will enter your name, the email address associated with your NSBS Membership Account and your Member Number. Your account will be activated as soon as your information is verified by our staff. This verification process will eliminate instances of imposters attempting to use the online system.
