Solicitors' firms registration process for applications for leave to appeal in the Supreme Court on Courts Service Online - CSOL
The Courts Service will be rolling out an online system, in the very near future, which will allow solicitors’ firms and law offices of state bodies lodge applications for leave to appeal in the Supreme Court online.
In order that applications can be lodged online, such firms and offices must firstly register on the Courts Service Online system (CSOL).
The registration process is set out below.
The registration process is a three-stage process.
Google Chrome web browser must be used to enter data and access information on CSOL.
The first stage is the creation of an account by entering data electronically on www.csol.ie
The following data is required to be entered.
- Account Type (Choose 'Legal Firm Account')
- First Name
- Last Name (This should be the contact person designated by the firm or office in respect of CSOL. 'Administrator')
- Email address
- Name of Firm or Office (Some of this information is pre-populated from a database which is provided by Law Society)
» Law Society Number
» Firm or Office Address
» Bank Account Details
Manual documentation for registration.
The firm/office administrator downloads from CSOL documents that are required for registration.
These documents should then be completed in hard copy along with other supporting documentation, as set out in CSOL, and returned to;
Central Application Support Unit,
Circuit and District Court Operations
Activate Firm/Office Account.
When the manual documentation is received by the Courts Service an email with an activation link issues to the email address provided.
The administrator in the firm/office follows the instructions in the email and activates a firm/office account on CSOL.
The administrator can now access CSOL and register additional users from the firm on CSOL.
Online guides are available at the following links:

This is a pilot project initially available to solicitors’ firms.
