freshlit.ru is a legal resources site that provides a number of services and facilities for legal professionals, students as well as the general public. It encompasses legal recruitment with a directory for those wishing to locate a service including listings of Solicitors, Barristers their firms and chambers. Where a member of the directory has acted in a criminal case listed in our unique sentence tool they are linked.
The sentencing tool has been developed for freshlit.ru, and it is a unique facility which will be of use to a number of different groups. 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. Easy-to-use and constantly updated, we believe that the tool will be of use to the following groups: Barristers, Solicitors, Think Tanks, the Media, Students and the general public. We are currently negotiating with HMCS to make this tool even more useful so watch this space.
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.
The recruitment part of the site allows recruiters and firms from across the spectrum of the legal profession to advertise jobs and find the very best person to fill their vacancy from a pool of candidates who regularly visit the site due to the services described above.
