Bloomsbury Professional launches affordable online legal content service

Multi-award-winning Bloomsbury Professional*, the UK’s largest independent legal publisher, has reinforced its commitment to offering quality content at a fair price with the launch of Bloomsbury Law Online.

A comprehensive online service, Bloomsbury Law Online offers fully searchable, instant access to 21 practice area modules, with content from more than 130 leading products. These practice areas include banking and finance law, charities, employment law, family law and property and land law**. The content will be regularly updated.

As Bloomsbury Professional is committed to a transparent and fair pricing policy, it has published all its online single-user prices, starting from £21.60 per month including VAT. Prices are discounted for multiple practice areas and multiple users.

Most of the content on Bloomsbury Law Online is derived from established texts that have been relied upon by lawyers for many years. This content includes cases, commentary, legislation and precedents. Within the functionality is the ability to search or browse the content, use a quick-search function, search within searches and save searches. The advance search function also allows users to search for items using Boolean operators and to search authors, books, case dates, case names, chapter titles, editors and full texts.

Subscribers can easily print documents and share content through social media. As they have a personalised account, they can save frequently used documents and set up search alerts.

Due to the excellent functionality it offers, Bloomsbury Professional is already the online service provider of choice for thousands of users in the UK tax and Irish law and tax sectors.

“Bloomsbury Professional is delighted to be able to bring affordable, quality online content to the UK legal community,” said Greg Kilminster, Managing Director, Bloomsbury Professional. “The platform is easy to use, without unnecessary expensive features, and search results are returned with lightning speed. Pricing is transparent and customer service is second to none.”

Bloomsbury Professional is a cutting-edge publisher of high-quality books and information services for lawyers, accountants and business professionals. Its strategy is to work with great authors to provide excellent content at affordable prices, in the formats that its customers need.
