Note to Customers

You may notice some changes to the look and numbering system of the pages of your latest looseleaf release, and the issue may be larger than an average update. We are in the process of standardising the look and feel of Jordan Publishing titles to align with other publications in the LexisNexis portfolio and will be releasing larger chunks of content until the entire looseleaf has been published in this new format. Rest assured, issues will remain comprehensive and up to date during this standardisation process and the cost of any increase in extent as a result of the transition will not be passed on to you.

Division A (Law and Liability) — Section A2 (Road Traffic Accidents and the MIB); Section A7 (Psychological Injuries).
