As part of the NACLC and LexisNexis partnership to promote the rule of law, through the provision of high quality, contemporaneous online legal resources to our sector, CLCs now have access to a new resource on criminal law: the LexisNexis Practical Guidance Module on Criminal Law.
This resource is an online ‘how to’ resource, currently for lawyers in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland dealing with criminal law matters in the Local/Magistrates Court. (Note, other Practical Guidance Modules cover more jurisdictions).
This resource includes helpful tools such as practice tips, checklists, precedents, forms, legislation, cases, legal updates, commentary excerpts and links to other LexisNexis criminal works.
As part of the NACLC/LexisNexis partnership, CLCs can also access Practical Guidance modules on the following topics:
- Consumer Law
- Family Law
- Employment Law
- Property Law
- Business Law
- General Counsel
- Succession Law
- Work, Health and Safety
LexisNexis describes these Practical Guidance Modules as: purpose built solution[s] for lawyers, providing instant direction and access to up-to-date information by topic area in a format that mirrors your workflow. It acts as the first step in a lawyer’s research by providing an initial top-level ‘compass bearing’ exercise to direct investigation, thereby increasing the efficiency of all subsequent research.
