Searching online for reliable knowledge on legal matters can be tricky – most sources these days are either out of date, out of the loop or far too costly. A group of lawyers, advocates, barristers and law graduates have all grouped together to tackle this problem and have created, ‘Unlock The Law’ – the free legal advice site covering the UK.
Unlock The Law offers free, reliable guidance in an easy and informative way to resolve common legal queries. The site includes expert guides on different areas such as criminal law, employment law, personal injury law, family law and more. The site also has videos, podcasts and infographics that explain legal issues – consumers want information presented to them in engaging ways and not just the written word.
What’s more, Unlock The Law also blog daily about the legal issues arising from current news stories and events.
Ally Thomson, solicitor and director at Unlock The Law said:
“Free Legal Advice from Unlock The Law is created to make the law more easily understood. The site is for everyone who has a legal difficulty to resolve or a desire to understand a legal issue better and gives people the chance to quickly access information that they need in one online location . Previously they may have spent hours searching through the internet or even paying a solicitor for legal advice. Our team of lawyers and digital professionals combine our expertise to make the information on our website as presentable, easy to use and helpful as possible”
Unlock The Law uncovered a recent story featured in the Herald concerning the abandonment of a decades old agreement not to prosecute marginal drink drive cases. Unlock The Law provided the story and information to the newspaper – the original story can be read here.
