LexisNexis UK, a leading provider of content and technology solutions, today announced that it has launched My Legal Places, a free legal app for Apple iPhone.

The easy-to-use resource enables you to locate your nearest police stations, law courts, Citizen Advice Bureau and community legal offices.

After selecting the service required, the application provides the user with a number of possible options, in both a list and map format. The map identifies key locations, with easily identifiable customised icons, that can be bookmarked. This easy-to-navigate application enables the user to locate and get in touch with the right service in the way they want to, when and where they need it.

Simon Collin, LexisNexis director of content, commented: “At LexisNexis we are committed to promoting the rule of law and supporting access to justice. We recognise that legal issues are often unpredictable and require immediate response, and many people find themselves in unfamiliar and difficult circumstances, often unsure of their legal rights.

“My Legal Places app provides people with the tools to find the services that can offer this help quickly and easily, while also helping to promote the services that deliver it.”

The application is being used as a valuable research tool in legal projects. By viewing legal services in different areas, users can effectively compare and contrast the number of services available, providing a starting point to look at possible effects and trends.

LexisNexis has produced this application in partnership with Fry It, a provider of open source technologies. It can be downloaded from the iPhone Apple store.

Zahid Malik, CEO of Fry, said: “Fry is committed to finding innovative technical solutions that can help and support people and make a real difference to their lives. We are delighted to have created this app in partnership with LexisNexis which builds on our experience of creating similar services for the education, health and voluntary sector.”

New right to paid leave for bereaved parents: A welcome move

Kimberley Manning DAS

This year, like many in recent years, has seen some key changes within the employment law field, with the government, trade unions and lobbyists remaining endlessly engaged in seeking to impose their interpretation of fair balance between employers and their respective workforces. Although consensus on that equilibrium can never really be achieved, sometimes there are pieces of legislative movement which are difficult to argue with regardless of your perspective: This is one of those. Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
