No

I have looked in the past in some detail to no avail.

Not very helpful, but I didn't want you to think you were being ignored

Bless you Andy

I have tried google but I am just either coming up with law firm websites or sites that invite me to enter my credit card details as there are several specialist lawyers waiting to answer my query...as my query relates to a trust matter and the specialism of the gentleman waiting appeared to be employment law I thought better of it.

There is a legal section if your question is business related.

@Shirley

Thanks, but it is a trust matter, so I don't think that would cover it

Try us!

Some of us do quite a bit of trust stuff - which, of necessity involves having a working knowledge of some trust law, You could try posting it here and see if any of us have come across the answer? Not that I'm saying I'll be able to answer it!

no lawweb, beacuse

lawyers are too arrogant to admit there are things they don't know

They wouldn't get any users

Do you not have a local friendly (is that an oxymoron?) solicitor.Try local  golf club, betting shop, pub etc 

I have a long relationship with a firm of solicitors who answer free a lot of my legal questions as I do their accounting ones. I would suggest this as useful to all Aweb members

Amused

Q: Is there a lawyer equivalent of accountingweb?

A: Take up golf

All in just a few short steps. Think cost of membership, clubs, shoes, lessons, six months lead time before you get to play a round with a solicitor.

Paula, I hope your client has the patience of Job and very deep pockets.

STEPS have a forum site which works like this one - very helpful and appropriate for Trusts

tried STEPS

But not sure how it works.  Nowhere near as simple as Aweb

Lawyers' site for lawyers

There is a site, whose area of interest is self-explanatory, on which lawyers post questions for answer by other lawyers (and by expert witnesses) - Criminal Solicitor Dot Net.

But that site is not one for non-lawyers to get legal advice on their personal circumstances.

As you might expect a lot of the items on the site are in the forum entitled "Billing"!

But in that respect are those lawyers so different from the accountants on AWEB who debate similar issues?

And AWEB is not intended to be a forum offering free advice to non-accountants on how to, for example, prepare small business accounts and tax returns, without instructing an accountant.

But that is exactly what we do if there is a simple question with a quick answer.

No lawweb, because (3)

Lawyers can never agree, a lawweb would therefore be pointless

did you know copper wire was invented by two lawyers fighting over a penny?
