We are pleased to announce the addition of new UK Annotated Statutes to Westlaw HK.

THE FIRST TAKE ON NEW LAW

  • What will be the impact of new legislation?
  • How might it be interpreted by the courts?
  • How has its effect changed in light of subsequent legislation and case law?

UK Annotated Statutes on Westlaw HK will give you the most authoritative and up-to-date guidance on the law as it changes over time by way of amendment or judicial consideration. 

This major new product development will help you understand how the law affects you.

Fast and Accurate – Trust the Experts

Within two weeks of Royal Assent our team of 40 lawyers, led by parliamentary Counsel Daniel Greenberg, will explain the effect, purpose and likely application of new Acts and selected Statutory Instruments.

UK Annotated Statutes give you the insight you need, when you need it most.

Authority and Currency

Our team of experts will monitor the legal environment and capture any key changes that affect the interpretation of legislation.  UK Annotated Statutes will be updated in line with such changes to ensure that your research material is up-to-date when you need it.

What’s Included?

Important Westminster Acts and Scottish Acts from 2008 onwards will be annotated. Key legacy statutes including the Data Protection Act 1998, the Human Rights Act 1998 and the Freedom of Information Act 2000 will also be covered.

Pre-2007 legislation will be annotated on an ongoing basis.

We are pleased to announce that we have added a series of UK Practice Area Commentary titles to Westlaw HK.  The addition of these titles can help you to extend the reach of your online legal research by interlinking the case law and legislation to the analytical materials in which they are cited.  No longer do you need to switch from book to book, with Westlaw HK you can now link directly in between the primary law and the analytical text.  Our intuitive and easy to use new functionality also allows you to quickly and easily return to previous documents you have viewed within the same research session, making legal research even easier.
