LexisNexis announces partnership with SASLAW to advance labour law in SA
Legal technology company LexisNexis South Africa’s drive to advance the Rule of Law took a major step forward with the announcement of a partnership with the South African Society for Labour Law (SASLAW) in August 2021.
SASLAW has entered into this partnership because it provides value-added benefits to its members at a time when the profession is steadily moving over to digital solutions that provide quick and efficient access to reliable content, powered by intelligent systems.
LexisNexis has created flexible and cost-effective Lexis Library starter packs ideal for SASLAW members who are first time users of the platform, with content that can be customised and selected from a wealth of labour solutions available.
The partnership offer also gives SASLAW members the opportunity to sign up for free case law updates (email alerts on the latest topical case law sent to SASLAW members free of charge), free access to Lexis Sign, an electronic signature tool for a predefined period, as well as discounted prices on targeted content available on the LexisNexis e-sales platform in the future.
We wish to sincerely thank the following sponsors for their ongoing support of the society:
- Global Business Solutions
