How to produce effective legal information - Tip #9

Better Information

If you provide legal information on your website, you should consider including access to a plain language legal glossary. This would help your reader understand legal terms used in your material. If possible, you should try and include the links to the glossary within the legal information on your website. Making these links available within the resource, allows the reader to access definitions without having to jump out of your resource to search the definition of particular words.

Victoria Law Foundation produces a user-tested legal glossary that includes more than 450 common legal terms that can be used by other organisations for this purpose.

See the Better Information section of our website for the full list of guidelines and resources available to help you implement them
