FAQ

What is Lawfeeder?

Lawfeeder is a curated catalogue of UK legal update resources, with links to latest published items constantly updated using RSS.

We’re currently reviewing and adding several hundred more resources, so please bear with us while we do so.

What is its scope?

Lawfeeder resources are considered if they meet the following criteria:

  • they provide regular updates relating to UK law or legal practice;
  • are informative and of use to the legal community;
  • are focussed on a particular legal topic or are organised by legal topic;
  • are free to access; and
  • provide a working RSS feed for each topic.

We exercise our editorial judgement in selecting resources in order to optimise quality and utility for our audience. For example, we will not list resources that are essentially self-serving or promotional.

For a description of resource types, see What’s in Lawfeeder.

What is RSS?

RSS, which stands for rich site summary or really simple syndication, is a data format that provides structured update information about published resources. RSS data can be read by feed readers and other applications, providing a syndication channel for republishing.

For more detail, see this recent article about RSS.

Can I submit a resource to Lawfeeder?

Yes you can, but it must fall within scope. See the criteria above before submitting your suggestion.

To suggest a resource for inclusion, or if you have any comments or suggestions on the site, just email us. If you’re suggesting a new resource, send a link to the resource with a covering note. Don’t worry if you’re unsure whether the site provides an RSS feed; we will investigate. But if there is no working RSS feed, we won’t add it.
