The European Zone has legislation, courts, institutions, information, law and other things as well. The Practical Resources area has a hell of a lot of tools which should be of use to lawyers in everyday practice. It also has Mystery Tours from Delia Venables' site which are relevant to Scotland.
No more law please...
Don't worry, this site is not all law! There are many other links to non law sites on the Recreation Zone which has sport, a Games Zone, music, clubs, humour, web stuff, magazines, TV, radio and more. And on the News Zone which has links to most news sources in the UK and many worldwide ones too. The Shopping Zone has lots of products for sale on UK websites and a different design to the other pages to make it easier to use.

This site features a number of adverts and promotions from Amazon, Clickdocs, Lastminute, Paramount Zone, Valueclick and Tradedoubler. Click on these links to support the site. A few areas specifically promote the site and these are the Webrings and Banners areas.

Final word...
The legal web is no longer as small as it was when this site first started in 1997. Let me know if you come across a site you think should be added or if you find a dead link on this site.
