Guernsey legal resources go online

Guernsey has launched the Island’s first legal resources website – which is a joint initiative between Guernsey’s Royal Court and the Law Officers of the Crown.

It provides access to a collection and database of Guernsey’s legal material, such as Guernsey laws, including consolidated versions and recent changes; unreported judgements; Guernsey Law Reports; and Guernsey Law Journal and the Jersey and Guernsey Law Review.

‘The launch of this site is an extremely positive development for Guernsey as a leading international finance centre,’ says Peter Niven, chief executive of Guernsey Finance – the promotional agency for the Island’s finance industry.

‘Guernsey prides itself on having modern legislation, especially for financial services like the new Trusts Law and new Company Law that we introduced last year and we now have all this available in a user friendly online resources centre.

‘Having such a comprehensive ‘one stop shop’ will make accessing materials a much more streamlined process for anyone wanting information on Guernsey’s legal framework. The resources will be of particular benefit to lawyers and other intermediaries who now at the touch of a button will be able to see exactly what Guernsey can offer their clients.’
Guernsey features alongside the likes of the UK and the US on the OECD’s white list that was published at the conclusion of the G20 summit in London at the start of April and was ranked 12th in the latest Global Financial Centres Index that was published in March.
