This website has been designed to be clear and easy to navigate, while at the same time providing many different ways for you to see books which are most relevant to your area of practice. You can chose to simply look at books just published, or only forthcoming titles in your area of practice. The full search facility allows you to search the entire database by keyword, or you can chose to browse through our database by subject area.
The records you find here are maintained and updated by Book Data, one of the leading bibliographic services firms in the UK. Along with the usual bibliographic information such as author, title, publisher, price etc the vast majority of records also contain a description of the contents of each book, allowing you to make an accurate assessment as to whether or not the title will suit your needs.
Once you've decided which books you want you can either place your order though our website, or order from our bookshop in Fleet Street, London for collection later. Full address and contact details are given on the Contact Us page.

Our delivery charges are as follows:
Delivery of books overseas is via Air Courier, so your books will be delivered securely with a signature required upon delivery in your country.
We always try and keep our delivery charges as competitive as possible, but we ask that you bear in mind the average weight of a law book is much greater than your average paperback novel. The postage charge will depend upon the weight of the book and this will be calculated at checkout if the information is available. If the weight of the book is not known then the postage charge will be estimated and could subject to change but you will be informed of this before it is dispatched.
Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be.

We are constantly checking the information shown on our website to ensure each record reflects the latest price given by the publisher. We do, however, rely upon publishers to tell us when they have changed their prices, and given the vast number of titles from many different publishers shown on our database it is inevitable that occasionally prices will be incorrect.
If at any point we have to charge a price higher than that indicated on our website at the time of your order we will always advise you of the fact prior to supply, and await your confirmation before proceeding with the order. We will not make any charge to your payment details in relation to the book concerned until we have received your confirmation to proceed with the order.
