Tailor-made forms and precedents, procedures, drafting guidelines, checklists, specimen letters and legal summaries that support legal work across the entire range of local authority functions are all covered in Local Government Precedents and Procedures. Tried and tested ideas and techniques are brought together so that legal work can be handled efficiently, effectively and in accordance with recommended practice.
The work provides practitioners, whether working in private or as part of an in-house team, with advice and guidance on how best to provide the quality of service and economy in output that the demands of competitive tendering and greater emphasis on client satisfaction now require. In particular, it eliminates the need to adapt standard documents to meet the particular requirements of local government.
A vast range of precedent forms, agreements and letters have been specially prepared for all aspects of local government work: administration and constitution, employment, EC public procurement, social services, education, housing, highways, planning, developments services and commercial services.
The work provides summaries of the legal background, outlines of sources of law, checklists of pre-drafting matters, guidance on drafting the form, letter or agreement, the precedents, with alternative clauses for use in particular situations, and reminders of the procedural steps, particularly for court work.
