About LightLaw

LightLaw helps make the law in Northern Ireland work for you.

Our Story

LightLaw is a collection of free, practical, easy-to-read guides on the law in Northern Ireland.

Whether you like it or not, you’ll probably come into contact with the legal system at some point in your life.

You might want to buy a house, make a will or claim compensation for an injury.

If you start to research the law on any of these topics, you could easily find yourself getting frustrated.

Most of the resources online are disorganised and complicated.

You don’t want to read all about what some judge was talking about 20 years ago if you want to figure out how to prove something in court.

Plus, even if you find some information that is of use, if you look at bit closer you may find that the resource you are reading 

doesn’t even relate to Northern Ireland at all (the law in Northern Ireland is not the same the law in the rest of the United Kingdom).

That means the chances of you either getting the wrong information, or no information at all, is very high.

LightLaw changes that.

The LightLaw Guides gives people in Northern Ireland access to clear and practical information about the law here. They include tips and strategies to make sure your rights are being protected and that your experience with the legal system is a positive one.

If you have any comments about the website, or would like to suggest a new legal topic you would like us to cover, please get in touch using the contact form.

Good luck with your legal journey!
