UK Legal Resources

Having passed the QLTT exam for admission as a solicitor, I'll be collecting UK legal resources.

Legal resources in the UK and Ireland include Delia Venables' site on information for individuals, lawyers, companies, and students. The section on legal information for companies is quite extensive. The site gives a good description of resources with many links -- here's a sample: (from DiscLaw Publishing) is a specialist employment law portal. The site provides extensive employment law commentary (under the supervision of Henry Scrope who is co-author of the Law Society's "Employment Law Handbook") and aims to be a "one stop shop" providing access from a single place to everything which an employment lawyer is likely to want on the internet. The free area provides 4,500 cross-referenced fact cards spelling out the basics of employment law. The professional (subscription) area provides more extensive commentary plus thousands of categorised hyperlinks to a vast mass of source and other freely available employment law related background material. The service also offers a comprehensive selection of precedents by Michael Duggan of Littleton Chambers and an archive of Daniel Barnett's bulletins. It also provides summaries and/or headnotes of all cases reported in IRLR and ICR since January 2000, hyperlinked to full judgments, and a twice weekly hyperlinked "web-updater" provided to subscribers by e-mail, RSS and on the website itself. Free trials are available.

A highly recommended resource for UK law.

* The Law Society, which contains links to relevant regulations for solicitors.
