Law & Rights (www.lawandrights.co.uk), published by Public Services Publishing Ltd, is a searchable and fully tagged online hub of summaries of British legislation for library authorities, universities, further education colleges and legal advisors across Britain.
It is a web portal that contains 100s of summaries of English, Welsh and Scottish legislation. Through this portal we do all the work for you. We undertake the paper trail through legislation, statutory instruments, EU law and other parliamentary papers. We consolidate it, bring it up to date and publish the essentials so users know what the law says, today, in their jurisdiction, about a specific area of law.
Through a library subscription to Law & Rights the general public are able to find out whether their problems have a basis in law and, if so, what the law says about those problems. Students of law and social care have easy-access to just the areas of law they need to know about without having to hunt down amending legislation. And anyone advising on what the law says has a short-cut through endless legal documents if they just log in.
Law & Rights also exists in paper format as a two-volume bound annual publication; the same content but an entirely different format. This is priced at £120 per set per annum.
The content of Law & Rights comprises English, Welsh and Scottish legislation relating to: animals; benefits; cars and driving; constitutional law; consumer rights; credits; education; employment; environmental law; family law; health and welfare; housing; immigration; individual rights; intellectual property; NI contributions; national security; nationality; pensions; planning; social security; tax; and the justice system.
Law & Rights is the successor to The CANS Digest of Social Legislation, produced in paper, CD and online formats since the beginning of WW2. Then, as now, it was vital for the general public and those seeking legal information to know what the law says, today, from a single source, in their jurisdiction about living and working in Britain.
