Access to Law - Legal Resources

AccessToLaw is a portal site, providing annotated links to selected UK, Commonwealth and worldwide legal web sites - including Nigeria, Zambia and South Africa. There is a particular emphasis on sites which contain substantive law (legislation, case reports, treaties, etc.) or related materials (reports, codes of practice, official guidance, etc.), or which will help the legal practitioner to find such information. Apart from a few subscription services, which are clearly indicated, all of the sites linked to are free.
