Guides to the Law

Members can easily print the guides for clients or email the guides to clients or link to them from their website or social media profile.

They are also searchable online and promote legal services through educating the public on the law and how lawyers can help them make sure their legal rights are upheld.

The guides are an online version of the long-established Law Awareness brochure series.
