Welcome to PNLD

PNLD is an information resource of criminal justice legislation – but with a difference.

In addition to Acts of Parliament, Common Law, Regulations, Orders and Byelaws, PNLD also contains clear explanations and guidance, summaries of relevant cases and the standard offence wordings used throughout the court system – all written in plain English to ensure the information can be readily understood and quickly assimilated. A further benefit is that PNLD's team of highly qualified Legal Advisers research new and amended legislation to ensure our web pages remain up to date and in line with changes to the law.

PNLD has been guiding and informing the Police Service of England and Wales on criminal law for 20 years. Today it is also available, on subscription, to support all those with an interest in criminal justice, whether professionally, academically or for their personal development.
