By Lawyers have been providing content to the legal industry since 2004 and is now Australia’s leading library of legal guides and precedents, offering practical and professional guidance for all major areas of law.
The philosophy behind the legal guides is simple but revolutionary – to deliver information and guidance in a format that allows legal practitioners and support staff to run matters logically, from taking instructions through to finalising the matter.
Information is organised into specific areas of law such as wills, conveyancing, and family law. Each area of law is then broken down into detailed guides. So for family law there are five guides:
- Property settlement
- Financial agreements
- 101 Family Law Answers
Each guide contains links to commentary and precedents, all laid out in a clear concise step-by-step approach for the conduct of each matter, from beginning to end. There are also ‘If required’ folders and ‘libraries of less common forms and precedents’ for those occasions where your matter does not follow the usual steps.
This structure, which is a very useful risk management tool, not only allows support staff to confidently conduct matters in areas they are perhaps unfamiliar with, but also allows for precise answers to be found quickly. Users have the freedom to access as much, or as little, guidance as is needed, with the ability to easily navigate to the commentary and/or precedents required.
This clear structure, combined with plain language practical content, kept up to date with legislative changes and the evolution of the common law, creates a one-stop resource essential to daily practice.
