Find the latest cases without having to perform a
The 'Latest Legal Updates' section on the module homepage provides you with a list of all the new cases and legislation that are relevant to your practice area. Each update has a brief summary of the case or Act/Regulation, a link to the actual text and a link to the relevant guidance note.
Not sure whether to use the 'Read more about this from
LexisNexis' link or the 'Further reading' link within LexisNexis
The 'Read More' links are available to all Practical Guidance users regardless of their subscription to LexisNexis. These links can be accessed from within the guidance notes or from the Commentary tab, which reproduces all of the 'Read More' links for a sub-topic and organises them by guidance note. 'Further Reading' links require you, the Practical Guidance user, to have a subscription to LexisNexis NZ. These links can only be accessed in a guidance note and will be opened in a new window if you don't have a subscription to LexisNexis NZ.
Keeping track of legal changes
The 'What's New' section on the Practical Guidance homepage is your go-to section to keep abreast of changes in the law. If a case changes an existing legal principle, then our authors, who are always on hand to provide updates, will amend any guidance notes that are impacted by that decision.
A single control panel from which to access all
information in a number of ways
The Practical Guidance homepage provides a single control panel that is easy to understand and use. It also provides three flexible search options.
This intelligent and intuitive design and search functionality will ensure that you get to the right answer faster.

With Practical Guidance you can access relevant checklists at any time from within the topic overviews and guidance notes.

Content you can save and take with
Practical Guidance gives you the freedom to email, print and download content from the modules via the icons on the top right-hand corner of the page. This means easy reference, sharing and storage of the cases, commentary, precedents, forms and checklists that you need to refer to most frequently.
