The Law Pages is a legal resources site that provides a number of services and facilities for legal professionals, police officers, journalists, law students and the general public.

Legal Directory
A unique database of legal professionals (including barristers chambers, barristers, solicitors firms and expert witnesses) linked to court cases. The directory is designed to allow people not only to obtain information on the firms in their area, their contact details, their size, specialisms and so forth but also to read comments from other members of the public about the service that they received. Firms will be able to advertise and upgrade their basic profiles, and respond to any comments that are made about them.

Legal Jobs
Search legal jobs - including jobs at court, prisons and criminal justice organisations.
Recruiters from across the spectrum of the legal profession can advertise jobs and find the very best person to fill their vacancy from a pool of candidates who regularly visit the site.

Court Hearings:
Public court hearing lists at the crown court are available here. Magistrates Court lists are updated regulary, at short notice, and are not available here. The Magistrates Court lists are available outside the court hearing rooms. High court hearings lists are available here. If you would like to access county court hearing lists please register at courtel: https://www.courtserve.net/courtlists/current/county/indexv2county.php

Criminal Sentences:
The case reports on criminal sentences provide details of the court, defendant, offence/s, sentence term, sentencing remarks (where available), CPS, police forces and legal teams involved (where available). We do not hold details on any alleged offences or details on victims or witnesses in the cases. We do not publish every sentence. The sentencing tool itself is very simple. It is a database of sentences from across the UK allowing users to search for a range of sentencing information, from the length of a sentence for a particular offence through to the sentences handed down by a particular judge and the individuals acting in that case. Where a member of the directory has acted in a criminal case listed in our unique sentence tool they are linked. Easy-to-use and constantly updated, this unique facility will be of use to a number of different groups - Barristers, Solicitors, Think Tanks, the Media, Students and the general public.

Further details on criminal sentences can be found on the CPS website (https://www.cps.gov.uk/news), Police websites (https://www.police.uk/) the Attorney General's Office (https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/attorney-generals-office) and national and local news websites.

The courts post hearing/results team who will usually provide the details/results of the hearing where there are no reporting restrictions and a case was recently heard (within 6 months) in open court/public. See. media access to courts and tribunals

A transcript of the whole or part of the hearing (eg. Sentencing Remarks) can be ordered under the criminal procedural rules where the case is heard in public and not subject to reporting restrictions. This is subject to a fee (calculated on the hearing length/word count) and the availability of a recording of the hearing. See. https://www.gov.uk/apply-transcript-court-tribunal-hearing

The police (https://www.police.uk/) may also provide disclosure (under schemes designed to protect children and against domestic violence) where applicable.

If the records required are your own please see the instructions here: https://www.gov.uk/copy-of-police-records
