The web is our primary source.

One of our core purposes is to use existing technology to offer improved and efficient access to laws and regulations that affect our every-day lives.

The links and other information that are offered on our website are curated from reliable sources with up-to-date information.

This is because we want to be as sure as we can be that, when your users do their research via our site, they are accessing current information.

Our site encourages your users to take advantage of our search criteria. By following the links we have on our Help Desks, users can better inform themselves. 
Easy to answer: a Google search, for example, will return literally hundreds of websites, making it difficult to select those of genuine help.

Many sites will be out of date, even by a few weeks, and others will offer confusing or conflicting guidance on the same topic.

This is frustrating and, worse still, it can result in users being confused and/or misunderstanding their legal position.

We have carefully curated our linked sites to ensure that they are as redundant-proof as possible.

We have searched for and edited out the irrelevant or less useful sites, then created links to relevant & reliable websites and to specific pages within those sites that give up-to-date answers, so saving your members both time, money and concern in doing their own research.

Our website significantly and measurably accelerates your members' ability to reach the answers they are after.
All's links are to websites created and published by third parties who are believed to be reliable information providers. Many of the sites are provided by Government and government departments and by regulatory bodies.

We select the websites on the basis that they are the type that will be continuously updated so that, when you access them via our website, they will provide current information.

However, we cannot guarantee that this happens in all cases, so please be aware of this when you are browsing.
Increasing your audience is an imperative.

Research shows that key to achieving this is giving members a secure and resource rich 'shop' for what they need now or in the future.

Our professionally curated legal help desks can offer a significant service benefit for your members and add real value to what you, as their representative body, can offer them.
