Note that the asterisk above (*) means as follows:
“This service is a “First Aid” and research service only. European Law Monitor does not undertake representational work and therefore we are unable to represent you in courts and tribunals. The advice that we give is limited to general information on your rights and obligations in European Community law and its application to UK law based on the information you provide, and is not a substitute for the detailed specific advice and assistance of a lawyer acting for you.“
The website legal research concept is most interesting and potentially useful to persons and organizations in legal or business fields involved in European Union matters.
