We have a reputation for publishing high quality works that our customers can trust. Our authors comprise the most prestigious practitioners, judges and academics in their fields. Our flagship titles in Family Law are indispensable guides for our customers, and many are used daily in court, including Family Court Practice (The Red Book), Children Law & Practice, Matrimonial Property & Finance. Our flagship journal, Family Law, has been the publication of record for over 50 years, and is now supplemented by a comprehensive online news service, while our Family Law Reports provides the most authoritative source of case reports.

We work with partners in key areas, such as our APIL series of guides, and we also publish around 40 new books and editions annually across a wide range of practice areas.

From our offices in Bristol and London we commission and produce new publications in both print and electronic formats, develop new software, online services and arrange training conferences. We believe that our independent status enables us to stay close to the profession that we serve, and offer our authors unrivalled support, encouragement and editorial expertise. We are always interested to hear from potential authors, whether established or wishing to publish for the first time, and we welcome ideas for new publications, all of which are given serious consideration.

Founded in 1863 by Mr Richard Jordan, as a company registration and law stationery business operating from 123 Chancery Lane, in the very heart of London’s legal district, Jordan Publishing Ltd grew to become an independent, specialist legal publisher in 1894. We have continued to evolve since that time; most recently our investment in innovative online platforms and services means that we are ready to face the the seismic changes in the publishing industry, and we continue to be a trusted partner of the legal profession through the radical changes and challenges they face.
