My heartfelt congratulations !"
Keith Hawes, British Broadcasting Corporation
"My comments on your site: Bloody brilliant !"
"[As] chief of technical admin for auntie beeb, I spend considerable time surfing to see what's out there and how it compares to the BBC's intranet and BBCi internet sites. Many people on our news and current affairs desk have told me about your site, I just had to have a look and was struck by the depth of content and presentation, I can appreciate the time that has been put in to it's construction and found it very entertaining indeed. I like your style."
Andrew Arkell, Company Secretary, Queensland Investment Corporation
"As a member of a profession famous for its technophobia, I believe that you stand tall and can be justifiably proud of Lex Scripta.  It is incredibly useful and all of the lawyers and barristers that I know use your site as their first port of call when researching on line. For company secretaries and other "bush lawyers", your site is a godsend as Lex Scripta provides access to research that most of us did not know existed."

Bruce Ames, Queensland Treasury
"... congratulations on a most rewarding site to visit  -  my favourite site of all
except for the
Procol Harum site"

"Balanced, informative and deeply essential, Lex Scripta provides a resource as good as if not better than anything to be found worldwide on the web. Not to be drawn away from the central point of this site, the graphics are accurate, streamlined and ordered, naturally, the content follows suit - To be expected of course from a Q.C.!"
