If you are trying to log in with a new email address but you signed up for the site with an old email address, you can still log in using your old email address and password, as long as you know your password.

Once you have logged in with the old email address, please take a moment to go to "My Profile" on the left hand side of any practice area in which you are a member and update your profile, including your email address and contact information.  This information will automatically update for all of your site memberships.
