You probably buried your head in law books for months on end when you were at law school, but outside the world of academia, gaining access to accurate, reliable and up-to-date UK law and insights can be a tough nut to crack.
To do their jobs effectively and efficiently, all lawyers and legal support staff need a quality legal database and legal research tools to access quick and comprehensive legislation, case law and commentary.
Not convinced? Here are five reasons why:
The best thing about having a legal database is the time saved. Instead of scanning through physical law books, or relying on Google, a legal database will allow you to quickly search thousands of cases, hundreds of law books and all the precedents you
To give an example, LexisLibrary has exclusive content including Halsbury’s Laws of England, The Family Court Practice (The Red book), Atkin’s Court Forms, Gore-Browne and many more. It also gives you access to more than 600,000 cases alongside

In the wake of Covid-19, the importance of having remote access to legal knowledge is perhaps more obvious than ever.
A legal database lets you and your team easily access the latest legal knowledge, research and reports wherever they are.
Understanding and interpreting the law is something even the most experienced lawyers can struggle with – but a quality legal database will make information easily available for people from all levels of experience, with guided introductions, commentary
With LexisLibrary, your lawyers can quickly become experts in areas that stray outside their practice area or niche, and support staff can rapidly research law by ensuring they’re seeing all related content in one place.
When searching for a quality legal database, it's important to look out for the following features:
