Free legal documents websites are becoming more and more common so expect to see a lot more around. Whilst free documents might suit some, there are always situations where free documents and free information won’t be enough. How will you know if you’re not a lawyer? Yes, lawyers are sometimes expensive but, in fairness, all lawyers study a degree at University, this usually takes anywhere from 3 years (Undergraduate LLB) up to 10 years for Masters Qualifications (LLM). Lawyers are educated in essential legal subjects such as Legal Systems (how law works), Torts (the law of wrongs) and Contract Law (how contracts are binding). In addition, practising lawyers have to take an oath or affirmation to do the right thing and are registered professionals (with a code of ethics) and will have suitable professional insurance (just in case things go wrong).
You should know that obtaining “free” legal documents or taking legal information from the web is a risk and if you are ever in doubt we recommend you obtain legal advice about your particular situation, so that you can be sure what ever you are doing will work. Feel free to speak to any of our senior lawyers with any “free” documents you have obtained and tried to complete for advice about your particular situation and whether the document will be suitable for you.
