As you may know we are retiring after nearly 30 years of producing our guides to law. Our on-line guides are the most up to date, respected and well used publications in the field in Great Britain.

We are now looking for a suitable person or persons to continue producing, developing and maintaining the guides.

As always we have done our best to ensure the accuracy of the information provided. However it is not offered as an exhaustive statement of law. Our opinion is not offered as professional legal advice and is subject to interpretation by the courts. Legislation is kept as up to date as we are able. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information provided on any external site to which the guide links. Before acting on any such information the original printed copy published by the issuing body, authority or legislature should be consulted.

Particular care should be taken when relying on media reports. Both the media and governments often fail to distinguish between what is law and what is guidance.
