One of the most utilised and popular services on offer from the BAPC is the free 24-hour seven-days-a-week Legal Advisory Help line.
Statistics received by the Association for usage during 2009 clearly illustrated that members had a wide and diverse range of issues which required specialist advice.
Specifically these statistics show that over 50% of all enquiries received relate to contracts and employment, whilst other advice requested covered matters such as health and safety, research, copyright issues and various forms of litigation.
Tony Honnor, Association Director, commented “It is clear that this service is being used by more and more with employment matters being again the key issue. Members of the BAPC truly benefited from this facility at a time when they faced unprecedented challenges “
