We would like to thank everyone who took the time to complete our mini survey at the end of last year.
We had a great deal of positive feedback and it is gratifying to know how people use and value the Current Awareness blog in view of the time and effort that goes into running this service.
If you didn’t get a chance to respond, you can always email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
A handful of comments drew attention to areas where you would like to see some improvement. We have responded to these below:
EXCELLENT, KEEP GOING. YOU COULD ADD SOME OVERSEAS CONTENT, EG ON HONG KONG.
Unfortunately we are unable to expand the Current Awareness blog beyond the focus of England and Wales because of constraints on staff time. However, we do maintain AccessToLaw www.accesstolaw.com which is a website of annotated links, including lists of resources for other jurisdictions, such as Hong Kong.
Great service! However, the box in the top right-hand corner leads to my mobile device (Samsung S5) struggling to adapt to the size of the actual text column on the left-hand side.
We are currently working on a responsive design for the website and will be introducing a new design for the daily email which we hope will improve readability on mobile devices.
It’s an invaluable resource. I would prefer it if the title link in the email took us to the full story rather than to the listing on the main site (I know that there is also a full story link at the bottom of each listing).
I would like the link in the digest to go straight to the news item page, not the page on the blog (then onwards)
We agree that this would make the blog and the mail-out more user friendly. We will be implementing this in the near future.
The recent cases section would be much easier to benefit from if area of law could be attached in some way
We do attach subject categories to cases from the ICLR site which are posted individually, but it is not possible to do the same for BAILII cases; we have to post these as lists since there are so many of them.
Statutory instruments are included in a way that it hard/irritating to read. Otherwise, find the service really accessible and useful – thank you.
We are looking into improving the formatting of lists in order to make them easy to scan but also less intrusive for people who don’t want to see this material.
