UK-based online lawyer directory AccessSolicitor has announced the publication of its 125th legal guide in partnership with Westminster University.
As well as providing a directory and information about lawyers, AccessSolicitor publishes free legal guides for consumers and small business owners.
They cover popular subjects like divorce, moving house, business disputes, and immigration.
More than half of Access Solicitor’s legal guides are produced in partnership with the University of Westminster Law School.
AccessSolicitor has also said that it will welcome expert contributors to the site – in the form of either a legal guide, or guest blog.
Founder Warren Smith said:
“We are now opening up the platform for any legal specialist to share their knowledge and improve access to justice, and for digital marketing experts to share best practices with lawyers.”
