Local authorities are facing a period of unprecedented change and uncertainty. Lawyers are required to guide elected officials, council workers and the public through this process often with little support or guidance.
LexisPSL Local Government helps support local authority lawyers. With clear and concise practice notes, it provides access to detailed guidance written by experts in local government law- from private practice and LexisNexis- that will help you to interpret the primary law and guide implementation. There is access to amended current legislation and to case law which is updated on a weekly basis to check your interpretation of the law and support your decisions, with legislation and precedent to reduce the risk of challenge. Our expert team also analyse the latest cases and developments to bring you the most comprehensive news alerts.
With legal teams discharging their current responsibilities to the same high standards with fewer resources and a reduction in the number of specialist lawyers, there is an increased risk of providing incorrect advice and judicial review of decisions taken based on that advice. With LexisPSL Local Government you will spend less time on research and remain confident you are always up to date with the latest changes in the law.
