The advice sheets and guides available from here are intended to give an introductory guide to the subjects covered for anyone who is interested. They are not written in legal jargon but are accurate and up to date enough for legal advisers as well as lay readers.
The advice sheets and guides are available in pdf format only. You can download Adobe Acrobat Reader for free from here.
