LawPoints is a weekly email newsletter roundup of news and information which is sent by the New Zealand Law Society to the legal profession.
LawPoints aims to provide a quick summary of important developments which have relevance to anyone providing legal services in New Zealand.
The LawPoints objective is to alert readers to something which they may be interested in, and provide links to further, more detailed information. The service recognises that while many lawyers are overloaded with information, they also need to stay aware of developments not only in the areas of law in which they practice, but in the legal profession and legal services industry.
The Law Society’s communications team compiles LawPoints from a wide range of sources, with assistance from the Law Society’s library and law reform staff.
Information in LawPoints covers the 7-day period since the last e-newsletter.
LawPoints consistently follows a standard format, with information arranged under a number of headings:
LawPoints is sent out every Thursday night (with a break between mid-December and mid- January).
Anyone who holds a current practising certificate issued by the New Zealand Law Society is sent LawPoints, unless they have opted out (this facility is available to all recipients at all times). Associate members of the Law Society also receive LawPoints.
A copy of each LawPoints is held in a special archive on the my.lawsociety website at http://my.lawsociety.org.nz/lawpoints.
Inquires about the content or information in LawPoints may be addressed to email@example.com or by phoning (04) 472 7837.
