Legal Client Newsletter Service

The Institute for Business Research, formerly the Management Research Centre, has been publishing the Legal Client Newsletter for the past 20 years. The articles are written by practising legal professionals and enable you to stay in touch with your clients on a regular basis through keeping them up-to-date with legal information and issues relevant to their business and personal lives.

The service is an economical and convenient way to maintain client contact and to promote your professional services. By subscribing to the service you save the time and money required to write and format a topical, high quality newsletter in-house. The options below allow you to do as little or as much work in-house as you prefer.

How it works

The newsletter is delivered quarterly (February, May, August, and November) and is available in the options outlined below. All newsletters have four articles, and in the case of options 1 and 2, we also provide an alternative article as a substitute if required. The newsletters comprise four A4 pages so can be printed or copied to form a double-sided A3 booklet, and are designed to allow the addition of your firm's letterhead and contact details (or we can do this for you, see the Personalised option below).


  1.  Microsoft Word Formatted (97 - 2003)
    The newsletter is delivered to your firm pre-formatted in Microsoft Word (version 97 - 2003) giving you the flexibility to personalise it in-house. You can add your letterhead, office updates, additional articles and graphics specific to your firm, without the additional cost and hassles of writing your own or reformatting the entire newsletter.
  2.  Text Only
    The text only option saves time for those subscribers who prefer to put together their own newsletter, but utilise some or all of the articles provided by the Institute for Business Research. This option will save re-typing the articles. In addition, you also receive a formatted PDF copy of the newsletter so you can see the layout we applied to the articles.
  3.  Paper Copy
    The paper copy of the newsletter is a formatted version delivered via the post. This version allows you to photocopy the newsletter for distribution to your clients. As with all versions of the newsletter, space is provided at the top for your firm’s letterhead and contact details (or we can add this for you via personalization).
  4.  Read Only
    The read only option allows you to print an original formatted copy of the newsletter in-house for copying rather than receiving a paper copy via the post. The newsletter is delivered in PDF format. With this version of the newsletter you will be unable to make any changes to the format or text (but Standard Personalisation is available - see below).

 Personalisation and Printing

Standard Personalisation: The newsletter can be personalised with your firm's details/letterhead. This service is available for all options above.
Advanced Personalisation: This includes changing the text/articles or format/layout of newsletter. This is only available for options 1 - 3.
Printing: As part of The University we can access printing and copying at competitive rates.
