"Advicenow is the liveliest, least stuffy, most accessible and understandable website on legal matters that I’ve ever come across."

Advicenow is an independent, not-for-profit website, run by the charity Law for Life: the Foundation for Public Legal Education.

It provides accurate information on rights and the law.
