AccessToLaw is a gateway site, providing annotated links to selected UK, Commonwealth and worldwide legal web sites. Over 1400 sites are currently included.
Our policy is to include sites which will be of relevance primarily to practising lawyers in the UK. This means that while many different kinds of site are included – mainly legal, government and parliamentary sites, together with some general reference sites – there is a particular emphasis on sites which contain substantive law (legislation, case reports, treaties, etc) or related materials (reports, codes of practice, official guidance, etc), or which will help the legal practitioner to find such information.
Apart from a few subscription services, which are clearly indicated, all of the sites linked to are free.
The content of AccessToLaw is selected, annotated and updated by an experienced team of information professionals on the staff of the Inner Temple Library in London. The Inner Temple Library is one of the four Inns of Court libraries, which serve barristers, judges and bar students in England and Wales.
New sites are added regularly, and existing site entries are checked and updated every three months.
We welcome feedback from visitors to the site. If you have any comments or suggestions, please contact The Librarian.
